The Blue Mountains - Echo Point

On our Day Date, L and I went to Echo Point, which is probably one of the more touristy sides to the Blue Mountains, where the "famous" Three Sisters live.

(below: the Three Sisters, because of the three rocks sticking out from the cliff - I personally think there is a fourth small sister but UNESCO doesnt agree).

In short, the Blue Mountains are named as such because of the bluey haze that is seen around the moutains, created by the amount of eucalyptus oil that is in the air (the primary tree that is found in the Blue Mountains area is the Blue Gum Eucalyptus tree)).

There - a little bit of trivia for you and a bit of sight seeing around Sydney for my overseas readers.
