Middledale pass on the way to Geluksburg, we had to drive with lights on in the pass and down in the valley the sun was shining!

NICE! :thumbup: Recognised the 'Cascades', ..... spent some time at the Royal National Park and Mont Aux Sources on our honeymoon and re-did our honeymoon trip again on our 25yr anniversary (7 yrs ago). ;-)
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.

Life is like a jar of Jalapeño peppers ... what you do today, might burn your ass tomorrow.
Don't take life too seriously ..... no-one gets out alive.
It's not about waiting for storms to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.
And be yourself ..... everyone else is taken!

Sorry for the late response, was in a workshop all afternoon.

Took the S800 from Swinburne to the R74 at the top of Oliviershoek pass, all the roads were dirt roads, but a real beaut of a place!
