Life in the Mountains - with a google eyed view!


I'm looking forward to when Google maps includes links within the area being viewed to all the latest content related to that area on the net. Find the latest phone photos, blog entries, meeting spots, tourist information, street directions...

Good to see Australia in Google maps. This screengrab is of Katooomba. Its the urban centre of the Blue Mountains. Development follos the road and rail lines that weave their way up the narrow platue to pass the otherwise rugged terrain. The cliffs in shadow look over the Jamison valley. The famous Three Sisters and the views into the valley are from that cliff edge.

For a flight over Katoomba make sure you check out Google Earth (if you haven't already done so)
