I live in such a beautiful place. 🙂
Last week I was fortunate enough to spend a few days in Moonambel and surrounds, researching the winery cellar doors, cycling routes to link up the wineries and trails / tracks for walking and mountain biking. It’s such a gorgeous valley. Here’s some pics from my ride – dramatic weather that day as you can see!
I carried on up to a town called St Arnaud in our neighbouring shire to spend Friday night and explore some more – gorgeous historical buildings and a great view from the caravan park. Sweetie and I had a very exciting drive through the St Arnaud Ranges Forest on the way home the next day – the section of Centre Road that I did was supposedly 2wd friendly, but I have my doubts! Anyway, we made it.
Returning home from there – past Winjallock the home of Landcare Australia, through the quaint village of Navarre and southwards via the Landsborough Valley – was a spectacular drive. At so many times I was tempted to stop and take a photo of the beautiful hills, valleys and acres of vineyard plantings in the gorgeous sunshine, but I didn’t think my iPhone would do it justice. Then just before I turned onto the Pyrenees Highway near Elmhurst, I decided I simply had to stop and capture this view – stunning.
Aren’t I lucky? And thank heavens the rain has arrived!
