Roadtrip…

…last Saturday with my sister the foothills of the high country to visit Jamieson via Mansfield where we had a cuppa tea with our little brother…

The sign said “Lookout 6 ks” – I’m convinced 5 of those 6 ks was straight up! 😐

The view near the top over Lake Eildon…I took many shots because there is no way I will drive up there again…NO WAY! We had to go all the way up the darn mountain before we could turn around safely…then we had to come down! That was worse and the hysterical passenger (aka my little sister) didn’t help much…words like “shear drop”, “there’s nothing there” and “stop the car I wanna get out” didn’t help my nerves much, honestly I was ready to kick her out of the car! 😉

We did make it down safely but I will never go up there again, that winding road is way too narrow for me.
