Driving to Katoomba…

We left Canberra and headed to Katoomba in the Blue Mountains. We drove through lots of sheep stations (ranches). In fact, we saw the Big Merino in Goulburn. I didn't go in the shop and now wish I had.

We've seen kangaroos, wallabies, and wombats on the drive. These are all big enough that you really don't want to hit them with a car but it's obvious from the roadkill that cars are hitting a fair number of these animals. We saw this wallaby on the drive…

On all of our drives we've seen these fire danger signs. Australia is a dry continent and they have been in drought for many years. This year they have gotten more rain so the arrows on the signs we've seen point to low-moderate. Notice the highest danger – catastrophic.
