Sandstone Caves - Part One

Getting into the Sandstone Caves walk in the Pilliga Nature Reserve, N.S.W.   Gosh, the colours along here were fascinating, and the beautiful textures. Nature is amazing, it was such a treat to see; so are you ready then?

Follow me...hope you like 'the rocks" as much as I do.


Welcome Swallows were seen entering some pockets like this.  What a great spot for them to build their mud nests, though not sure how far they had to fly to gather 'mud'.  They sure work hard for it.



a good spot for bats too

surely it was one that has fallen and broken into two halves...do you think?



looking back



and yes, while I sat ... looking up overhead, and hoping now wasn't the time for a slice to drop.  Russian Roulette?  Maybe it's time to move on....






Well I guess it all starts looking the same when you see it like this, one-two-three, but when walking it, there were unexpected little finds and changes in colours and textures ...you should've been there.

More of the  Sandstone Caves tomorrow; more of the same you might think --- but quite different :)!

That's quite a geology lesson you've presented us with. Yes, I do like the rocks as much as you and I'm looking forward to the next instalment.

These are wonderful photos of the rocks and all their texture and colors. I think the first and last photos are my favorites. They would look lovely framed and hanging on the wall!

Wonderful formations! Makes me wonder how deep the caves are. This is a part of Australia I haven't seen before.
