The Murrumbidgee Field Naturalists‘ website has a page on Pulletop Nature Reserve, that says, amongst other things, not to try to get there when the roads are wet.
There’s a reason for that advice. I wrote it. I should know.
But did that stop me last Sunday? The picture tells the story … so there’s not really much more that I should add.
It was a very cold day, as you can tell by the clouds, and it took over an hour to get out. That mud is really slippery and these ‘all wheel drive’ cars are not as good as I would have hoped in these circumstances.
It doesn’t rain very often in Griffith these days, but it doesn’t take long for the unsealed roads to become unusable. Check out the conditions before you travel, and get out of the car and have a look at the puddles before you try driving through them!!
I think I still have traces of mud between my toes and my clothes are stained. We’ll laugh in weeks to come.
