Within the boundaries of Scheyville National Park, we found the remnants of buildings from the 1920s through to the 1950s .

Welcome to July and the wintery months ahead!

 

We have already experienced a few cold days and even had a massive dump of snow across NSW and the ski resorts. During this time, we were staying with our daughter in the Hunter Valley and went out for a drive out to one of our favourites, True Café in Lochinvar, for lunch.

As the temperature became colder and the awesome snowy-looking clouds billowed bigger and more purply-grey with bright white fluffy edgings, we decided to go snow cloud chasing so tried to find a place on higher ground to take some photos of these extraordinary cloud formations.

Chasing the snow clouds in a northerly direction led us to a perfect view of the distant mountains of the Barrington Tops where we could see the snowflakes twirling and spiralling down from the clouds, dancing through the chilly air to finally land on the mountains. Amazing! Spectacular! What a sight! In fact, so much snow came down that they closed the roads to many places including the Blue Mountains, Northern Tablelands, and the nearby Barrington Tops, with only one road open into that area because of damage from the previous  bushfires, storms & now this snow fall, to all the other access points other than the one from Scone, but because things were deteriorating so badly, National Parks were deciding to close this as well because the road is very steep, wet & slippery, even for 4x4s. 

It snowed down as low as Leura which has not happened since July 2017 when my daughter took me to the French Restaurant there, where the snow and icicles were everywhere!

The area affected by the snow fall on those few days was one of the largest on record, having snowed from near the Queensland border in the north down through NSW to the Victorian Alps.

It was freezing and I had bought a warm coat the day before for $8.00 at a local op shop but was so excited at photographing these amazing clouds, that every time I got out of the car, I forgot to put in on, so the brisk wind just blew straight through me. BRRRR, it was cold !

Special thanks to Mark Romer, for allowing us to use his photos of the snow.
