Summer Down Under

One of our readers, Richard, sent me a couple photos of them out on a trail down in Australia. Ah, to see summer once again ๐Ÿ˜‰ What is neat is how much this area looks like the edge of Eastern Washington as it runs into the Cascades and of Montana in certain areas.

On the Valentines Firetrail:

As Richard mentions “in early Dec on a weekend ride in what we term our โ€œHigh Countryโ€, (though in Australia the word โ€œhighโ€, is relative, though we got to a point approx 5900 feet above sea level). Overnighted in one of the old huts that are scattered throughout our alpine region.

OK, those huts are way too cool. The photo he sent of the inside is pretty neat. I want cabins like this where we go ๐Ÿ˜€ I did some reading up on the area and what a cool area!

I think you just added a new area to my life list ๐Ÿ˜‰
