Default Re: Beaconsfield Backblocks...one winter afternoon

Couple of shots for SF....Quarry Rd. nowadays.
I think they're still not quite done with the park/ reserve bit yet...Boral left a mighty deep hole there.








Lots of those on the day...





Barely out of the starting blocks....Cardinia Creek.
Never knew it even existed!





Maybe Richard should've taken the same line through the guts of the crossing as Brad + the Husky (..."and that's the washing outta the way!")





"Those bastards got me into the poop again!"






Many turnoffs and corner-markers later the sun finally decides on a stealth appearance.







Only a few pics this time, there just wasn't much "light+life" around all afternoon. Riding conditions were excellent though, just damp enough to keep the dust down, just dry enough to dodge any real mud...and most backroads in excellent nick. Had to turn around at various "No Thru's" while others turned into "Dry Weather Only" or "Land Management Vehicles" blahblaah....and got us some nice, scenic...if short...stretches of bush-riding-in-the-suburbs.

Ohhh....and the Berglund turned out a semi-sealed fizzer, while the Yackatoon Rd. terminated in a-pile-'o-shyte on top of the hill.

Still, a nice little bag of "newies" added to the collection.

This is actually much more like how I remembered that crossing.
I'm picking there is something wrong with that camera of yours. Maybe the lens is dirty or something.

I was wondering how you kept those bikes so clean while out adventure riding ;)
