Weekly Photo Challenge-Descent


My contribution for this week’s challenge…



 A few years ago, while Cairns, we decided to…skyrail_4688

take a trip  on the Skyrail, to Kuranda village on the Cairns’ Tablelands.

The day began with a rail journey up a mountainside…

past waterfalls in a rush to…


skyrail_4684to descend to the sea.

On and on we ascended the tablelands…

a rearward glance reveals one’s ascent is the opposite of a descent.

A pleasant few hours in Kuranda village and it was time to return to Cairns.


skyrail_4769Our journey down from the tablelands also required some ascents…

and far below us the train was making another ascent….or was it a descent?
Up and over and…

skyrail_4790down we went, slowly descending…
passing over roads and vehicles descending in another manner…

until at last the end was in sight.

And so ends the descent and our Skyrail outing to Kuranda.

Well worth a visit should you be in the Cairns area.
