Leaving LTP and Heading South

Last weekend we left Lemon Tree Passage behind and headed south toward Sydney and beyond.

Before we got to Sydney we passed through a section where the road had been carved out of the sandstone.

It kind of felt like we driving by the Flatiron Building in New York City the way it is narrow and pointed at you are you apporach.

These extensive sandstone formations stretch from New Castle all the way to Pebbly Beach. As you will see in subsequent posts, this ancient formation from the Permian and Triassic periods (300-230 million years ago) ends a little south of Pebbly Beach. More on this later.
