Jeogla - Wollomombi - Aberfoyle - Bundarra Ride

I'd had plans of taking a few of the boys up the big hill towards Glenn Innes and Inverell.

It seemed logical to do some recon and see what was in store.

The day started out nicely, plenty of sun and good temps.

The difference in vegetation once you get up on the armidale side is quite interesting.

Its so green in the Macleay at the moment.

Past Wollomombi you'd think they were still in drought.
