Waking this morning revealed just how far above the plain were.
The ride north to Eungella took us through some fantastic jungle.
Dropping down into Eungella it self took us deeper into the rainforest. The final miles into the town were on bitumen, winding between the palms, vines and lush dark green vegetation. For once we greatly enjoyed the bitumen. A fantastic road.
After soaking up Eungella and meeting a photographer who was using drones to video the impressive landscape for a Japanese tv channel, we headed out toward Eungella Dam. We took a side road loop that looked interesting. Boy, was it rough! I bottomed out my front suspension for the first time ever I think. Later on I discovered I also put the first dent in my rim. Quite a ripper of a dent too, ouch!
A tough river crossing, lots of jumps, rocks everywhere and a few hill climbs.
Great track though 🙂 lots of fun.
Camped on the shores of the Eungella Dam.
There were fish jumping but I am not particularly surprised I didn’t catch any…I only had a bit of carrot for bait haha
Ah well. Beautiful spot.
