Those scenes remind me of a many places I've been in New Mexico, Colorado, Utah and Neveda - although I never saw any giant hopping marsupials there.

what front light unit is on your G650?

Well it's Mirror actually as I had an off couple of weeks ago and trashed the left hand mirror, they are the Hockey stick style and they came with the bike, they had 2 bikes in the show room and I liked these mirrors better so I got this one

here you go!

One of the Rio Trains 2.347 Klms long 240 carts and 2 locos and a brake cart



View over Harding Dam from Table Top



Looking out the 'bridge' hole just shows how much water they expect from a little creek, they have sensors at half way up and at the top to show water levels to the train control panel

Love the pic of the train.

The more I see of the great NW, the more I want to get up there.

We must have the same eye for photography!!!
I took this when the road blew out and also the train lines. I work in Pannawonica for Ngarda, and Rio sent us out your way for a week or so to help get the train lines up and running again.
