Today I had to take a detour for a couple kms due to logging operations. 

It followed the power lines.

I was happy to be out of the forest for a short while so I could enjoy the morning sunshine.

My bike just fitted underneath these branches.

The track continued to get worse. I checked the App and realised I had made a wrong turn. Thankfully it only took 10 minutes to get back on the trail. The App is very user friendly. 

This is the trail that I missed.

I had lots of downhill to finish at the hut. And a scared emu ran across the track in front of me. 

Hello!

After I took this pic, my photo remote thingy stopped working. Phooey.

A couple maintenance people turned up to check on the hut and supply toilet paper. I thanked them for an awesome trail.

This hut is located on a small hill.
