My intention was to go via The Great Alpine Rd but things didn't come together as expected and I had to change my plans. A combination of a killer hang over (gotta love Christmas) and the fact the it was -1C up at Mt Hotham on Sunday morning I decided to stay in bed! ) With motivation levels restored on Monday morning (Christmas eve) I decided to hit the road and head for Shepparton. Non stop rain meant that I put my head down and headed where I did not want to go, the Hume! Stopped just north of Melbourne and this was the view.
