Hi guys, just published a blog recounting our first proper snow camping experience. We have had some snow while in the VHC but nothing more than just some patchy snow fall. Hope you enjoy the story.
After following the North – South Caves to Caves trail, in the Kanangra-Boyd National Park, we have returned several times. Day trips and overnight, as there are plenty of other tracks to explore. So, when a friend, an insatiable explorer such as ourselves, suggested a new campsite, and new trails; We packed the LandCruiser.
Agreeing to meet at Burralow Creek camping area after work, we ambled firstly though Penrith, northbound, then back again as we had forgotten to pick up firewood, then again – northbound. Winding north by north west in search of this particularly urban patch of scrub. After some disagreement between Siri and Hema, we found the fire trail. Descending down and around, we both relaxed. Despite the sun having long set, the combination of ARB and Baja Designs lighting brightens any trail, and we’re happiest off of the bitumen.
