The Blue Mountains

The Blue Mountains has millions of acres of eucalyptus trees.  Because of all the oil from the trees, a blue hue is cast throughout the forest giving the mountains their name.  The Blue Mountains are a special place in the world and one of my favorites.  Ten years ago I traveled to Australia and spent several days in Katoomba, the hub of the Blue Mountains.  We hiked and hiked, and enjoyed the cool air and the relaxed vibe of the area.  Ten years later I was so excited to bring Mark here.  I hoped the Blue Mountains were still as magical the second time around and they were.  We enjoyed the cool air at night and we had a great time meeting people from all over the world in the Blue Mountain Lodge.  I hope we can make it back before our time in Australia is up.
