Default Kinglake and Yarra Valley.

This mornings ride took us through the back roads of the Kinglake area. Views of the Yarra Valley and general Victorian country vistas.
It hailed ( more like snow) at Kinglake while we were at the Flying Tarts bakery. Here's a few pics of our day.

Admiring the views



Must clean the lens on the iphone one day...



A visit to a historical gold mining cemetary

And a panorama of the Yarra Valley









It was a nice day out. bit nippy, and the camera didn't come out again due to the cool conditions.

Cheers Doug

Some neat shots, guys

...and I had to google for that Tesla to find out what all the fuss was about


Here are a few more pics of a bumblebee-route through the northern hills.


A sparkler of a morning in the Yarra Flats near Mt. Lofty/ Bend of Islands.
Bloody cold though...and wind gusts trying to push you off the road.





Great to see Willo on the "Tassie Bruiser" XT600 for this one,....Hans, you're watching?....the roaring, farting Scrambler added some sound and Doug's mint-looking, trusty Strom.



Cracker views near Watsons Creek




Oooh yeah...my kinda place !!!


















Whisps of fog ...and other ghosts....at Smiths Gully

On the ridges above Yarra Glen, views and howling gusts across the Yarra Valley and Mt. Dandenong's TV-towers piercing the blackbellies in the background on the right.










A little later, up one of the spurs to the Kinglake Ridge





























Not far away...Melbourne Central, with a dash of sunlight.









A quick dash home amongst the hail and sleet...and another sweet day off the beaten track in the bag.
