Mandy, Tallis and me
We had nothing firm planned but it was too nice a day to waist so we roused Tal out of bed for a quick trip through the Grand Canyon at Blackheath.
For the less adventurous there is a nice tourist trail along the rim of the canyon
It was hot and sticky on the walk in and we got to the abseil point just as another group were roping up. So we suited up at a wider area of the track before making our way down just as the last 3 were about to abseil in. It was a pleasant surprise to see the familiar face of Lyn Cook.
We dropping after and have a quick hello with Lyn and Jim. We let their group head off while we phaff around with photos before following them down.
*edit: I found the photo not quite the same angle but not bad for a spur of the moment thing going off a memory from 20 years ago
