The stress of life on the road is getting to me

Followed the northern side of the Clutha river from Millers Flat to Beaumont. Pretty narrow road right from the start. Then a sign said narrow bridge 5 Km ahead. Max width 1.8 meters. Got out my measuring tape and the bus was 2.1 meters wide, not including mirrors. Thought they are always conservative about these things, so why not?

Got to narrow bridge and it had two bends in it which caused some of the problems. Drove on to it and very slowly idled across. No sweat.

The road got interesting then, single lane, very very few places to pass and a grass strip in the middle. Always a good sign that not a lot of people gone before.

Found spot by the Clutha to park and watch the sun go down. Moved on to Gabriel’s Gully the next day. The sun went down there too and had to watch it in case something went wrong. Sigh.
