View attachment 50997 What better way to scrub your new rubbers than to head towards some Melbourne hinterland mountains and 'get lost'?
And get lost I did! A few times, plenty of U turns and even into dirt roads... But none the less, still had fun in the sun, was down to only 2 layers and worked on my navigating (non existent skills). Amazing what there is to discover...
Mt Dandenong - managed to skip the $2 entry fee due to having to fumble underneath so many layers to get my wallet out! The poor dude gave up on me and probably didn't want more cars backing up behind me so he wavered me through. LOL

Random road - albeit cold, it is truly nice to see nature changing colours in all her glory, with Autumn evidently on it's way. The display of oranges, reds and yellows between lush greens is just stunning!

Warburton to Healesville - Gravel! Ooops....Archeron's Gap (Archeron way) Luckily the gravel was only a short few kms and it was in good condition - hardly any pot holes and the dust was kept down by yesterday's rain. It was rather pretty and the twisties just before and after the gravel section were tight and no cars about - just what the doc ordered!
