I have been exploring the Blue Mountains west of Sydney.** There are some spectacular walks from Evans and Govett’s Lookouts near Blackheath.
In the following photograph you can see vegetation black from the 2006-07 Lawsons Long Alley fire which burnt about 14,440 hectares of national park. There has been lots of rain recently and the undgrowth is recovering with many beautiful wildflowers.
