to Jindabyne, Victoria Australia
(February 1 - 6, 2007)
Darin is cycling around Australia.
Australia's multi year drought has left mud cracks where lakes once were.
The rail trail sign in Bairnsdale, the Rail Trail now goes to Orbust.
The first 11 km of the rail trail were paved, awesome.
Stony Creek bridge, the only big obstacle on the rail trail, we had to push our
bikes up the other side of this ravine.
Free camping on the rail trail in a Victorian gum tree forest. We
saw a sugar gilder in the evening and a deer (imported from Europe) with a large
rack in the morning.
Dry, Dry Dry Australia.
Seldom Seen Petrol shop where we picked up our last food supplies before heading
down to the Snowy River.
Cindie in front of a bike sculpture, a large fire came through in 2003 and
destroyed all his bikes so he made a monument of them.
Emu country, the beginning of a long dirt road, actually it wasn't that bad.
Into the wilderness we go.
The foothill of the Australian Alps, the Snowy River is down there some where.
The road calls, we dropped about 500 meters on this road.
We met Martin along the way.
The Snowy River, it is 4% of what it use to be.
Our swimming hole at Running Waters Campsite.
Martin is ready to ride, he has a Koga World Traveler too.
Tim at our campsite at Running Waters, we saw gliders here too. It was a
hot day but the evenings cooled off.
The mighty Snowy River.
The road meanders up and down near the Snowy River, that's Tim, his hair is
The Watkins lookout, you can see the road behind Tim's bike.
Lake Jindabyne, it looks a little low.
We made to the visitor center in Jindabyne, I was a bit tired from the ride
