Grey and overcast, Monday doesn't start too well and just about anything could be waiting up in the hills.
Decision made, we hit the twisties towards Omeo and see what happens.

Found the little Bingo Spur, getting us directly into the Omeo Valley and up Mt. Blowhard again.







Standing on the shores of Lake Omeo ....
.....and instead of watching the boats come in, it's the bikes going out!





ALL the tracks across the dry lake converge at the Benambra Pub...











A leisurely lunch in Omeo...and it's back past "The Duck" and onto the Bogong High Plains Rd, across to Falls Creek.
Sweeet-Twisty-O...
(but to keep the sport-punters happy, she'll need a fresh coat of blacks soon!! That asphalt is getting corrugated badly enough in some bends as to shake the fillings out of the back teeth)









...or ride one of those, no bumps, ever!!












Some opt for the Trappers Gap, some take the lazy way of the Redbank and Lockharts Gap, bearing the brunt of a hot summer's afternoon in the valleys.


Great day up and around the High Stuff, good company and plenty of laughs.
Life's Good!

From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benambra,_Victoria

Quote:
The town of Benambra is on the shores of Lake Omeo which can also serve as a tourist attraction, however this lake only irregularly holds water at present. During wetter times a pier and public toilets were built at the top end of the lake furthest from the town where the lake is at its maximum depth. The depth varies when full from about 3m at the top end to about 1m at the town end, where the lake will flood across the sealed road. When holding sufficient water, the lake has hosted sailing, and, later, speed boat races; the last speed boat races were held on Australia Day in January, 1975.
