The Day small creeks became raging torrents
Went for a short ride today to have a look at some of the devastion from all the rain in the Lockyer Valley. Start the ride from Upper Flagstone Creek Road, I meanded down the range and took some photos of these small creeks that became muderous walls of water.
At the start of Flagstone Creek Road
Nice and windy. This is a great ride.
This was a nice little stream on the 9th of January
alot of the road is now gravel.
This rock is the size of a 6meter by 3meter shed.
You can see the water was above my bike.
The country is the greenest I have seen it for a while. Really looking good.This is coming into Helidon From here I went over the railway line ond onto 15 Mile Road into Murphys Creek.
Alot of these
This was the start of Stevens Road near Murphys Creek. It got worse from here with alot of ruts(big ruts) going down the roads. Only lasted for 3 ks but it was a test for a bloke on a big bike. I feel the bike is alot better than I am
Did about 100ks. A most pleasant ride for a couple of hours.

My bike is still much better than me, and I have gotten much better.
Ahh, Summertime scenes , we haven't seen those on our upper half of the world in a while.

On the other hand, if it has been logged or mined and roads already exist,,
...then that land should be open for public use" (peterman)
