|Three Sisters on the edge of the Jamison Valley.|
The 3 sisters, let's call them, Kylie, Danii and Barry - after Australia 3 most famous "women", although maybe instead of Danii we should have Priscilla? That will be two laydees and one queen of pop then.
I've just got back from early-ish cycle to the 3 sisters. As I cycled down and up Katoomba Street - it's a bit like one of those wavey slides you go down on a door mat - past some amazing whaffs from an invisible patisserie, towards Echo Point, it was clear that the valley was sitting beneath a heavy mist. The sun was starting to shine on the cable cars of the scenic skyway doing their early morning test runs. A couple of backpackers were having their breakfast - yesterdays bread and half a jar of Nutella - on a bench in the viewing platform.
I cycled as far as I could down the track to the start of the Giant’s Stairway and walked down the first section of it for “experienced walkers” to the first of the 3 sisters. Next to a bench under the overhang there’s a large copy of an Edwardian photo of 2 girls in long white dresses viewing the rocks.

|Will miss this bike in NZ.|
|Steepest railway in the world in Katoomba. Basically just feel like a vertical ride down a cliff face at 52 degrees.|

|Evidence of forest fire that was started deliberately October 2011. Apparently they just caught the chap responsible for it today!|
