Good pics, and not too many words, they way I like it, keep it coming Nev.

A lot of cars for one family, like a motor museum Helen and I visited on Deep Lodge Montana in 2017. There must've been 200 old and newer cars owned by one family - it just ain't fair!!

Some mighty big tyres on that truck, too!

Mt Lindsay Highway a nice piece of road. In really, really poor nick 1st time I rode, the road authority has been slowly upgrading it, 2nd time a bit better, 3rd time getting almost okay, can't wait for the next ride.

Not far from the bridge is the turn-off to Urbenville via the Tooloom Road, you may not have ridden this ride, but worthwhile the next - in better nick than MLH.

Jo and I also stopped at the Deer Lodge Motor Museum on our 2015 trip. I posted a bunch of photos in that ride report.

When I left Stanthorpe at 7am Monday, the thermometer in the park was showing -1.6 degrees. An old bridge near Tenterfield.



The New England Hwy wasn't too busy and there was only a little fog.



Which soon cleared to another beautiful day.



Stopped briefly in Tamworth



The road between Premer and Caroona is nothing special to the naked eye, but something about this stretch of road appeals to me and I'm always happy riding down here.



The Premer Pub



Down a sidestreet is this house which once had a mural of a railway scene painted on the side, but it has now badly faded.



Ever since the first time I rode through Coolah, almost 20 years ago, this old shelter has been threatening to fall over.



Near Cobbora, another creek desperately in need of water.



I never get sick of seeing this frog on it's tricycle outside a scrap dealer in Molong.



The main street of Condobolin, with many historic buildings







The sun sinking in the sky as I approach my stop for the night at Boorowa.

6:30am in Boorowa. The sun is almost up, and the temperature is down



The fog was thick, limiting speed to about 70kph, and everything was white, with a coating of ice and the temperature dropped a couple more degrees.



I stopped to capture the sunrise.





By the time i got down to the Hume Hwy, the moisture in the air was freezing onto any surface in it's path.











But that didn't mean it wasn't going to be a beautiful day for riding



And just to show that it can't be sunny every day, every where... The last photo of the trip, cresting the hill in Cragieburn, with the CBD in the distance, and a clouded sky, the first i've seen for 6 days.
