If you ever let go of something in the middle of a tough situation, can you promise me that it won’t be me? — Moonlight Drawn By Clouds
When was the last time you did something for the first time?

Well I've got to say yesterdays sunrise was the strangest I've seen. When I got to Bronte it was looking to be an incredible light show, then a very fast moving band of grey clouds rolled in from the south. Everything changed so quickly, but luckily there was a small gap in the horizon to let some light through!
Surrounded by the prettiest of ferns, chilled by the cold pristine waters and finding pockets of seeping light through the crevices above. It's these moments of solitude I revel in, in the constrictions of the often overlooked canyon of the Grand Canyon walk in Blackheath.
Omar very pleasant day out, (undoubtedly chilly in the canyon) I guided a small eager group of adventurers and nature seekers out to the Grand Canyon trail in the Blue mountains, which some had done previously before, but never sought into the canyon.
Avoiding the abseil by taking the exit route upstream, the intially large cavities of the canyon began to constrict more and more almost a kilometre in before doubling back the way we came. It's then that I took some time at the end to sit and ponder while also taking a selfie.
Location: Canyons of the Grand Canyon Trail, Blackheath, Blue Mountains - NSW
Directions: After heading to Blackheath and Evans Lookout Road, park at one of the carparks and start the famous roughly 3 hour loop trail. The back entrance to the canyons are located near the midpoint section which is marked by a NSWPS sign pole and do require short swims at certain points but the first few sections can be done without getting wet. (DM for specific directions to canyon) **Note: All canyons are potentially dangerous due their unkept and remote nature and often lack of access to any reception. Safety gear is always recommended and your whereabouts should always be known to another.**
Highlights: This spectacular canyon can be accessed walk in from the back or as an abseil from the start accessed halfway down the Neates Glen side of the trail. Make sure you do the highlight of what is already a spectacular walk!
Ive never had the pleasure of walking out on the sand pumping jetty at The Spit, very popular for the fisherman i was dodging and weaving fishing lines and people casting on my way out to the end of the pier.
