Wee Jasper Road (Yass to Wee Jasper), NSW

These images were taken last weekend (mid-October 2016) on a Sunday drive from Yass to Wee Jasper.

It's so incredibly lush and green here at the moment due to all the rain and I could easily imagine I was in Northern NSW.

"Wee Jasper is a village in the Goodradigbee valley at the western foot of the Brindabella Ranges, near Burrinjuck Dam in New South Wales, Australia in Yass Valley Shire. It is located 80 km north-west of Canberra and 54 km south-west of Yass" (Wikipedia) and The Wee Jasper Valley sits in an ancient seabed and has many places of interest for geology enthusiasts... as you will see by the images of circular rock formations in the landscape - really amazing!

From Wee Jasper we drove out to Carey's Cave (and plan to go back to do a cave tour) and then back-tracked a little way along Wee Jasper Road and turned on to Mountain Creek Road to get back to Canberra. Really beautiful countryside and a nice day for a drive. You can see more images here.

Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve, Canberra

These photos were taken on a Sunday drive to Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve back in July this year... but as usual there have been big gaps in time between blog posts...

The plan is to go back and explore the reserve in more details. More images can be seen here.
