| From there it was lovely winding smooth tarseal
but not so good when following a truck-
He soon pulled over and we swept down through the hills
The only gravel interludes were smooth
and it was well-kept farmland into Mudgee.
We went back via the easy road through Wellington!

| there were big rock slabs in the bank, and in the road!
and we even crossed a drift!
Then amazingly suddenly the road climbed up to a tarseal T-junction and we were in Hill End.
This was a raging goldmining town over a century ago, and then everyone just got up and left. Its not that it has been preserved, it just hasn't been knocked down and replaced!

| More rocks in the road-
and more.. We met a 4WD drive coming down a really narrow part, but driving up the bank got us past..
Somewhere in the middle they had a proper passing bay!
Then more of the same
and more big cliffs

| more narrow winding road..
which got narrower and tighter.. This is a passing bay!!
The road was built on stones like brickwork in many places-
Big hills & valley-

| There are some spectacular views-
and we headed down to the river flats-
Obviously the river comes up at some time, although not enough to get the ute muddy-
..and plenty of rocks in the surface..
and as we started to climb up again..

| Dijo had to go to Mudgee for a quick job & said if I went with her she would go up via the Bridal Track.
This heads up out of Bathurst, and has this sign at the start-
The road soon gets quite narrow-
and winds around a mountainside-
with rocks in the roadway-
