When I left Deakin, the temperature was in the mid-teens - just perfect. First stop Cotter Dam. Lots of water flowing over the dam wall which made the air smell really clean and refreshing. The next part of the journey saw me catching up to a caravan which kept the speeds down.
At Tidbinbilla, my favorite walk had apparently been improved by the inclusion of a new lookout. So off to the Mountain Creek car-park. Only one other car there so I strapped my helmet to the handlebars and set off on the Cascades trail. This is really good for the soul, even more so after rain. One tricky ascent where the water was flowing over the rocky steps but my Goretex lined boots didn't feel a thing. Absolutely lovely new waterfall access at the new lookout - the iPhone pics don't do it justice but I hope the GoPro footage does.
A mostly uneventful ride home except for the dickweed who tried to overtake me when there was clearly an oncoming car. He slammed on the brakes but I think the oncoming car probably needed an underwear change. I was already moving onto the shoulder so no damage to me. Caught up to the caravan at Tharwa - I suspect they were lost. A lovely outing!
