On Top of the World...Almost.


Arlene and Justin look on as Jamie photographs the Buff Bay Valley
Now that I'm safely on this side of Sunday, I dare declare, "Yesterday was AWESOME!!!" I was almost on top of the world, or so it seemed as some friends and I made the trek up the Blue Mountains. We drove from Charles Town in Buff Bay as far up as the terrain allowed then parked and walked the rest of the journey to Section. Once there, we stopped at the James Dennis coffee farm for some much needed rest and good organic brew.

It was definitely one of the more fun yet eventful Sundays I've had in a while; what with one flat tyre, a twisted ankle, landslides and a close-call (yes, my life flashed before my eyes as I negotiated that never-ending hill through the Dennis coffee farm). Still, I'd do it again in a heart-beat.

The views defy description, so I will not attempt any. I guess it was such a place as this that Gregg Braden referenced in the statement, "A place where the skin between the worlds is really thin." As usual, I got pictures, but its an experience you must have for yourself. I guarantee it'll leave you breathless, in every way possible.

Beautiful! I assume that it is still impossible to drive over to Kingston on this road....but just going up from Buff Bay and parking and hiking is an intriguing idea...how long was your hike?

Thank u Marsha.
Liz, I'm not sure about driving over to Kgn. But my hike was a little over an hour one way. You should def. give it a try.
