so was scooting around the forrest near Walpole, and decide "here" wasnt a good place to camp



got outta there pretty quickly, tracks started getting rougher, and started winding downhill...




till i got to this..




walked across the rocks... view from half way over..



view from other side..



so back across i climb, jump on the bike, and splutter on thru the first real creek/river crossing of this trip...

didnt end up being that deep.. bit higher that the top of the front sprocket..



up a fairly steep hill on the other side...

to this



so , no way thru on the left, and right was a reasonable drop down and a couple of trees in the way too..

back was the river and back up the other side,.. and well, it was just 'back'.. didnt like that idea much...

so around the left side it was to be...

of course bike was a bit long to do the sharp turn required, and panniers didnt help..

and neither did the ground giving way amd the back wheel sliding abut a foot down the hill in a little landslide..

anyway, half hour or so, lots o swearing and sweat, finally got her thru...




hey whatta ya know... that thing was called a 'gate'.....



hot, hungry and thursty it was off into Walpole...

service in the bakery was shithouse....

went down the lake for lunch..



nice spot..



but kinda glad i didnt get here the night before....
