I have been super busy lately and haven't had time to read or write posts. Thanks to all those who have commented on my blog recently.
On our way home from Tenterfield we stopped at Bald Rock National Park. Our super fit guide told us it only takes 45 mins to climb to the top, while the signs said it takes 3 hours. So I was wary.
Even so we all set off
The track got steeper and steeper and passed through some interesting rock formations
Some of the group had to turn back but some of us kept going, but I had a little rest and took some shots of the view below.
But this wasn't the top yet.
The track led onto the huge mass of rock but it still wasn't the top. There were markers on the rock to follow. Bald Rock is 250 m above the surrounding bushland, 750m long and 500m wide. It is the largest exposed granite monolith in the southern hemisphere. It is close to 1300m above sea level and you feel like being on top of the world.
Looking down was a bit scary
Looking up was awe inspiring.
At last we were on top. There were 360° views.
I took many shots and tried to merge them into a panorama but I had to make two.
