Default A Ride in the Park....

...and Mt. Baw Baw National Park at that.
"You want WHAT? Bookwork? Look at the weather, boyo.....we'll go for a ride!!"
And that was that. Not much convincing needed, let's head east into the hills then, we'll see where we'll finish up.
The old timber-town of Powelltown first




before the first set of twisties

and past Noojee towards Tanjil Bren


A break and a chocky bar to tackle more of the plentiful loose gravel, bark, subsided road edges and mid-corner surprises brought about by dropped branches after the recent high winds.








Goodie keels over while trying to get a good shot


More of those rotten twisties 8)


Mt. Baw Baw from the distance...a seam of wattle in bloom below the summit:






Off again for the last bit to the summit and Ski-Village


The view into the Latrobe Valley and across into Gippsland


Ski season seems pretty much over....












On the way back home






The Red Parrot Cafe in Noojee had a new barista on temporary duty and the cuppacinos were a superb side-dish to an animated coversation with a British/ South-African couple on a GSX14....the sun getting low as it was time to close the ride with a few more twisties on the way home as the shadows grew long.

Wow what a way to spend a day! Thanks for a great report, sometimes I get a bit jealous about all that alpine country you guys get to burn around in. Nothing funnier than a) someone falling over unexpectedly while walking backwards and b) and an animated south african motorcyclist!

Thanx!
