Bushfires October 2012

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

It might look like open and accessable country post fire but the ground is covered with sharp fire hardened black sticks that will easily puncture your tyres... As we found out 4 times negotiating a path around fallen trees over the track...

Yes I know about those blackened post-fire sticks :-)) They're not too good when they stick into your shin either.

Bushfires....they can kill us, they can devastate, but they are necessary for the survival of species as well. It's a tough country we live in Lex.

Tell me about it!! You doubled our experience. We got two tyres staked in 100 mtrs back in the '90s. Ah well..back to Hyden :/ It's a nice image GG, essence of the country out there.

Nice one Lex! Captured the place nicely. Hope the GasGas didn't require surgery on its tyres. cheers Gary.

Nice shot! Charming picture of Australia. I like such pictures, which show various countries around the world. Good luck, Alex.
