the coast was amazingly rocky... and after riding about 500km that day, i decided it was time for a 'break'



from one lookout, i could see a bit of beach 'way down there'.. also found a rough old track that headed off from the lookout...

figured i'd take a "quick" look down there to mix up the day a bit...........

that rocky old track, soon disapeared



i wondered how the hell i'd get back up, but it didnt stop me from pushing on..

i made it to the bottom...



had a real quick lunch, as i was thinkin it might take a while to get back up



so the climb began..



the 'nearly bald' back tyre didnt make life too easy.....




a fair bit of dust and i'd got up the first bit of hill..



.



it got a bit easier for the next bit..



but then i hit another steep part and ended up bellied out with the bash plate sitting on a nice big rock and the back tyre stuck in between 2 other rocks...all on a bloody steep dusty hill... no pics of that one, had my hands full just keepin the bike upright..

eventually got up though, took a hell of a lot of sweat and maybe 2 hours all up for this 'short detour'...



so it was back out onto the highway and off...

next stop, the border........
