Wednesday 22 Feb 2017. Baroon Pocket Dam / Lake Baroon

The last six weeks have been full of the 4 H threats to regular rides: Heat, humidity, housework and home renovations. This week has been a break in the weather and the home and house stuff is reasonably squared away for now and so today I took an opportunity for a small ride of back roads to and from Baroon Pocket Dam. A great place to have a sleep under the trees. There are two picnic / day use areas, the southern one has a short walk to a lookout over the dam spillway and the northern one has a number of picnic tables and amenities. The area is not just important to modern society, it holds a special place for the First Nations people of the region as well.
