We had an EasyRiders ride coming up and wanted to do a route assessment so thought we’d check out the ride today. The weather was beautiful and it was a delight to be on the road. The fragrant smells of the harvest (fresh cut grass and newly bailed hay) were abundant and the tourists were few and far between so a great mix. Have included a few shots of some of the sights you can see along the way.

Lush ferns and tall trees wherever we looked, beautiful.

Moss covered rocks and ferny glades with and without water depending on where you find them.

Spectacular wildflowers and the higher the altitude we got to the more prolific they were.

A view from the deck at the Tavern back across the Latrobe Valley to the Strzelecki Ranges. We are told that on a clear day you can see the ocean..…though I suspect you may need binoculars.
