  • RWTK: What is the single most amazing place you have ever been.

    I have been thinking about this all morning trying to come up with my own answer. What one place has made you stop and think this is the most amazing view, beach, town, mountain, landscape I have ever seen.


    Its a toughy, I dont really want to hear the Coldplay concert where Apples dad looked at me mid shit song, or when I proposed to my girlfriend at Sizzler.

    So what marvel of nature made you just think whole gad damn moth balls that is the greatest thing I have ever seen. I know last year in Jasper I saw some amazing animals and landscapes and shit but narrowing it down to a specific place or event is quite hard.


    Im going to keep thinking about mine, but hopefully some other can give me awesome holiday ideas.

    Isle of Skye, north Scotland. (not my pic).

    Isolated, barren, cold, almost alien landscape.
    Awe inspiring.

        Working on Cockatoo Island in the Buccaneer Archiapelago was a continuous postcard experience when you looked away from the mine and town

        Looking back at the mainland (Cockatoo Island)

        Fresh water creek (Cockatoo Island)
        but by far the most amazing interactive experience was surfing at a beach near Albany about five years ago, large surf, we had noticed the local dolphin pod hanging around out the back. I had just popped up from a wipeout with my board next to me with a fifteen foot face wave about to smash me with 15-20 huge ocean going dolphins surfing it coming straight at me. My friend was actually on the beach vomiting up seawater while this happened.

        A mixture of fear, adrenalin and total awe followed by being in a large washing machine hoping their radar was working and my lungs held out.

        It is a moment etched on my brain.

          snorkling in the mediterranean was breaktaking, as was surfacing on the nude beach.
          I do not mean to pry, but you don't, by any chance, happen to have six fingers on your right hand?

            Mitchell Falls (me pictured right, age 13).

            In truth, it could be any and all of the Kimberley that I got to go through, Windjana Gorge is geologist nirvana (well, if prograding sedimentary geology gets your rocks off), the Bungle Bungles are pretty awesome, Tunnel Creek, Gibb River Road in general is fantastic, Geikie Gorge, Horizontal Waterfall, etc etc. List goes on and on.

            It's super. Do it. Fuck Broome though, spend a couple of days there, sure, but beyond that it's a bit of a bogan wasteland.

                    Grand Canyon, USA. We arrived on a bus and watched the IMAX movie "grand canyon" and I remember thinking it was mildly impressive. Then we jumped back on the bus and drove to the rim of the actual canyon. All I remember thinking was "holy sh!t". I may have even stopped breathing for a moment. It is still the single most impressive place I have ever seen.

                      Wake and Kwajalein Islands...courtesy of the my time in the US Marines. These stand out far above many of the others I've been, with expection to watching the sun rise over Mt Fuji at 25,000ft standing at the back of a KC-130 Hercules. I don't think that counts as a 'place' though...not by the usual standards anyway.

                          Tough one. Spectacle wise Takakkaw Falls in BC was awesome, as was balancing on the summit of Cascade mountain.

                          Bizarrely though, the maddest spectacle nature has shown me was...Canberra. Yep. Summit of Mt Ainsley, 360 degrees of sky on fire with the most incredible sunset I've ever seen. Parachilna SA came a close second with a desert sunset turning to one of those nights where you can stargaze the full milky way.

                          Must dig up some pics.

                              Very fair call, how many times have you tried to explain just how big it is to someone else only to have them seem very ho-humm about it, no Picture or Video comapres to standing on the rim, you can stare into it for hours, and it takes you a fair while just to realise that the tiny bit at the bottom which is about 1/10th of its height is still bigger than the darling scarp.
