A paddock on the side of a hill just outside Hill End
No grand story or narrative arc to this one. I thought it looked like a nice day for a ride, the geohash was achievable, so I headed off. Was a blustery day, so perhaps not the ideal conditions I had envisaged, but for the most part it didn't give me too much trouble.
Out along the Old Sale Road, climbing into Willow Grove, where I grabbed a surprisingly good coffee from the general store. Then, out to Hill End (a hall and an overgrown tennis court) where I swung onto a dead-end farm road, which wound around and over a ridge, with some wide views on either side - north towards the flanks of the Baw Baw Plateau, and south over the Latrobe Valley to the Strzeleckis beyond.
The hash was just off the road and through a very convenient gate into the paddock. As I neared the point, a fella in a 4WD pulled over to check if I was lost. No, I'm exactly where I need to be - but thanks.
With the wind now at my back, and help from gravity as well, it was a quick trip home.
