Despite the impending weather forecasts, a couple of buddies and I drove into the Blue Mountains last Saturday, with the hope of getting to see the Everglades. Unfortunately, they had some issues with plumbing, and had to keep the gates shut. We had in fact considered jumping the very short stone fencing, but decided against it.

Instead, we enjoyed Leura’s deciduous flora lining the streets. We were consistently in awe of the bright red hues, and the clear blue backdrop was pretty awesome too.
