When we went up to Blue Mountains in Sydney, I already knew my chances of seeing the Three Sisters was really slim. According to the travel brochures, this nature park is an alluring place to visit. And supposedly, on a clear day, you can ride a cable car to see a panorama of bluish-green foliage covering the mountains. What’s more thrilling is the Scenic Railway which boasts itself as the world’s steepest railway. On this ride, you’ll plummet (safely) into a deep valley and you’ll be able to see ancient ferns, rock formations, and most importantly the famous Three Sisters.
Well, all of those amazing things in the brochure we were not able to do because of the dense autumn fog. In Sydney, winter weather approaches mid-year. So you’ll mostly have gray skies.
In our case, the Three Sisters were nowhere to be found. And so were the tourists and the tour guides. We just hung out at the souvenir shop and took some photos.
No view. No tour. Not much luck.
But there’s always a next time. It’s a good thing we visited Blue Mountains Chocolate Cafe and of course the township of Leura (which I’ll post about soon.)
