road to Lake cargelligo

From Griffith we rode to Hillston. The country side was relatively green for such an arid climate. At Hillston we stopped at the Local Cafe and had a chat to a guy from Dubbo who was waiting for 6 other riders. They were headed to the Flinders Ranges and then up the Birdsville track. We were very envious of their trip but unfortunately with only 4 days off it was not a possibility for us. We have pencilled in a 10 day desert adventure for next year!

From Hillston we headed off to Lake Cargelligo. The road to lake Cargelligo was predominantly dirt and we had a lot of fun speeding across the gravel road. We sat on around 100kph as the big duel purpose bikes soaked up the ruts and bumps. This is what we were searching for; great roads and an awesome semi arid backdrop. The sky was a deep blue and the horizon was far off due to the flat nature of the geography. I'm sure it gets as hot as hell here in summer but on the day we passed through it was a beautiful mild day.
