Glen Innes: beware cattle on the highway

We're in Glen Innes up in the Northern Tablelands of NSW. It has been cold, very cold. The next town (Guyra) even had snow! Day temperatures of 5 degrees and frost on the ground during the nights. The first settlers were from Scottish origin, the area made them think of home. The Standing Stones (see photo above) and the Celtic Festival in November are a reminder of that.

We visited Grafton (160km down through the mountains) for lunch, and how nice and warm it was down in the valley. The Gibraltar Range is a fantastic National Park we sure would like to come back with our camping gear one day.

Today I visited a playgroup in a commune 45km down the mountains. A beautiful winding, sloped unsealed and potted road (great, when you have a 4x4).
Die Hard creek crossing , the waterfall is also the road...
Back on the Gwydir Highway, but watch for furry cattle.
These guys have been on the road with their horses for about two years riding the National Trail around Australia. Stopping every now and then to earn some money for food and necessities before hitting the trail again. Life can be that simple.
