Blue Mountains - Australia - Rock Formation - Katoomba - GeologyThere are some beautiful rock formations in the Blue Mountains.

Katoomba Falls - Blue Mountains - Australia - WaterfallsI was also able to see the Katoomba Falls.

The waterfall has multiple drops for a total of about 800 feet or 244 meters.

Three Sisters, Katoomba, Blue Mountains, Australia, FogAnother of the attractions at Katoomba is the Three Sisters. Here they are very difficult to see because of the fog, but if you read some of my posts about the Blue Mountains there are some better views.

Pepperoni - Solo Soft Drink - Papadino's Pizzeria - Katoomba, NSW, Australia - Blue Mountains - PizzaI am also remember a nice lunch in Katoomba. I had a nice Pepperoni Pizza along with a nice can of Solo.

The pizza was really good. A nice crisp crust with a delicious topping. I also enjoyed the nice tang of Solo. This is one soda that I wish we had in the US.
