|Prince Of Wales Cliff Walk - Katoomba, Australia
The next day was hot and beautiful. I filled up my Platypus water pouch with three litres of water, filled another 600-ml bottle with water, stuffed my pack with two loaves of still-warm sourdough bread from a nearby bakery, and headed off to hike to the Ruined Castle rock formation. I got lost on the way from the hostel and wandered through the suburbs of Katoomba for a bit, but finally got to the trail head. The hike was rated as medium/hard, six hour return, and the park recommended bringing warm clothing and rain gear, so I picked up a souvenir fleece jacket and rain poncho (and some plush koalas!) from a gift shop before starting down the cliff.
