Glen Davis Canyoning

We spent the weekend at Glen Davis enjoying some beautiful weather after a couple of very wet weeks.

Beautiful Capertee Valley

Rich in the upper section

Tom & Smiffy below a short abseil

The upper section had many large amphitheatres

Rich contemplating whether he can avoid a swim

Smiffy (top), Tom (middle), Rich (bottom)

We bypassed this waterfall by two shorter abseils to the right. Mainly cause we were too wussy to get wet again.

Examining the next drop

Action man!
