More Katoomba Fun

The last major bushwalk (hike) of our trip was a six hour affair to the Ruined Castle, a pile of rocks across the valley floor and up a nice little hill. The sun was shining and we had a great day experiencing some real tracks (trails) away from the tourist coaches (buses) and scenic overlooks crowded with fashionably dressed tourists in multi-colored flip-flops.

Our last day and a half in Katoomba was designed to be easy on the legs. With the impending Six Foot Track Marathon, we took it easy. So, no heavy hiking. Only some light walking. We got a chance to spend more time “in town” and also to check out Scenic World, the “Disneyland” of Katoomba. We rode the steepest incline railway in the world and also the gondola. We put our faith in Swiss engineering and trusted the Alps proven technology to deliver us safely to the valley floor and then to get us back up to the station.

I wonder if they need any fasteners from Horst?

@trailrunningmom led another successful #Yoga at #Sunset for the #boltonlandtrust This year's venue was the #BoltonHeritageFarm It's been a tradition to move to a new spot each time. I got my first #cyclocross ride of the year in too! #yogini #yogi #shavasana Sightseeing on my second favorite road in #Connecticut #grassyhill #cycling #bicycle #sevencycles #horstengineering Camp was swell! @thecubscouts @boyscoutsofamerica #cubscouts #boyscouts #junenorcrosswebster I visited the new HQ of the @appalachianmountainclub that is under construction at 10 City Square in #Charlestown I had to ride by the #BunkerHill Monument at the end of the #FreedomTrail #Boston #sevencycles First time at the People's Forest Trail Race since 2011. This first image is the look of a dejected man who lost 25 minutes with a wrong turn on a big descent. That's costly in an 11 kilometer race. Even worse is that @trailrunningmom is the one who led him (and two other runners) off course! They survived. It was a nice day on the #FarmingtonRiver. #trailrunning #teamhorstsports #shenipsitstriders 🏃🏻⛰🏆 Another great #sunset at #windingtrails Two distant pre-swim thunderclaps turned the race into a #Duathlon which suited me just fine! It's nice to not come into T1 with a two minute deficit. #Triathlon #mountainbiking #trailrunning #teamhorstsports Once again, @trailrunningmom took the cookie prize for winning the special summit competition at the finish line of the #shenipsitstriders #SoapstoneAssault Here is a picture of a picture of myself taking a picture. @cwoodside59 put together a nice piece for the @ctforestandparkassociation quarterly. I'm looking forward to my next #carfreecommute #selfie #bicycle #windingtrails Kid's #Triathlon
