Just in from clubbies on the way to the east.

So this is where it all began... at Mt Buffalo :P

Doing a lap of Mt Buffalo (Victoria that is...) certainly puts a smile on yer dial :P

Nev

Mount Buffalo is a great buzz particularly early on a weekday with very little traffic when you can enjoy accelerating up 1,000 metres in 20 kilometres.

The view to the east is not too shabby with a massive sheer drop and views over the valley.

It was mid winter when I visited Mount Buffalo and the road leading down to Crystal Brook had frost for 200 metres. The ponds in Crystal Brook were frozen but fortunately it was a gentle bend and a gentle slope.

This useful sign was after I hit the frost and looking the other way.

Meanwhile back in the Snowy Mountains, our tourists gather... or is that flock... :|
