We headed south and it wasn't long until we started to see golden paddocks of canola. They are a stunning sight in the spring time.
There was lots of traffic on the road from Cowra to Young as the Newell Highway is still cut with flooding between Forbes and Wet Wyalong. There was lots of water lying in paddocks. This picture was taken looking out of the window near Gundagai.
There were lovely colours as the afternoon progressed.
As the evening closed in we hoped to see a stunning sunset, but it was getting rather cloudy by then. This is the best photo I could take as we drove down the Hume Freeway. Too many trees on the sides of the roads.
Then, about a minute after I took the sunset photo this happened. Yes, it started to rain. Fortunately, it was only scattered showers, and it has now stopped.
We are now settled in a motel in Benalla. Tomorrow our adventure starts for real.
