I enjoyed a slow cycle along the Stirling Ranges Scenic Route. The road was composed of recently graded gravel, but instead of making for a smoother ride, the grading actually made things tough by leaving a loose layer of pea gravel over a hard substrate. My wheels slipped easily. I am feeling a little bit better today and I think the body is appreciating the better food I am putting into it. I’m hawking up a lot of disgusting phlegm though. Better out than in. Passing Talyuberlup brought back memories of a rock-climbing camp I went on in high school. Not necessarily great memories. Year 10 wasn’t my most enjoyable year at school and this particular camp highlighted how much I didn’t like being at school. Right now I am curled up in my tent, hidden down a side track on the edge of the National Park.
