Nangar National Park, NSW Australia (video)

Took a ride last weekend in Nangar National Park, close to Canowindra NSW, Australia. There has been a lot of rain lately, and all the creeks were running water.

My helmet cam captured the ride nicely, but ran out of batteries just as I got my Varadero bogged in a soft muddy creek. We were able to push it out and continue the ride, but with no further footage. Thanks to ADVer NotForHighwayUse for the pics

Great fun way to spend a couple of hours and only 5 mins from home

Looks familier. Didn't someone get bogged ( well stuck really) there today?

Thanks for the ride. You did well to get that big girl through some of the tricky bits. Seems it was good practice for your ride on monday.

Good morning today, thanks again. Glad it wasn't me "stuck" in that hole this time

Definately have to get up your way!
Looks like a whole lot of fun in that area, guess it's the same everywhere, local knowledge leads to all sorts of situations!
cheers
