This January, while my friends were braving the cold winter up in Maine, I was enjoying the summer at home in Sydney, Australia. This photo was taken at Minnehaha Falls, a popular swimming hole in the gorgeous Blue Mountains, New South Wales. After a hot bush walk down the track, my cousins, sister, and I enjoyed a refreshing swim beneath the waterfall. Along the way, we met some friendly backpackers from Germany, one of whom is pictured here leaping from the slippery rock face.
