... no refills for us. We completed the lower loop of the park. Magical scenery – rivers, mountains. Lakes, bubbling mud pools, wildlife, waterfalls. I’d hate to come here in peak season as the traffic was horrendous. Rich took a bit of an off road detour on the bike at one stage which resulted in a slight marital tiff and a slap across the back of the helmet! He did however save us about 45 mins. In all we saw about 10 ...

Whilst there it started to rain as usual but then turned into huge hail stones which settled on the ground so it looked like it had been snowing. Very random considering its so hot here.
