I was still not 100% so I sat in the passenger seat while Rhonda drove up and back. The trip was about 2 hours and involved three major towns, each with their own hill ranges that led into broad valleys. The further west you went the broader and flatter the valley floor.
Leaving home - fog in town
Across the highway and onto the Yass plains - the Lachlan Valley Way,
Route 81, Yass to Cowra
Boorowa War Memorial - country towns try to 'outdo' each other on the
lavishness of their memorials
Morongalo - blink and you miss it.
Over the range and into Cowra plains
Entering Cowra - Railway bridge ahead
Cowra main street (Hate it - mostly reverse 45 degree parking)
Rocky hills, Darbys Falls - used in days gone by as lookouts
by Bushrangers (outlaws)
Darbys Falls - don't blink
Wyangala store and service station. Only this and the Country Club
as local businesses
Across the dam wall at Wyangala - soon to be closed to the public and a
detour route established through Wyangala township
Dam flood gates
Granite cutting - pneumatic drilled and dynamited out of the granite base.
Granite outcrops typical of the Wyangala, Darbys Falls,
Frogmore region almost like a collection of natural monolithic Menhirs!
Heading back home
Turning back onto Lachlan Valley Way - Route 81
Back into town
Over the bridge, turn right and home again!
