Looking back through the trees.
I wasn’t paying attention to my gps on the ride back and after a while I suddenly looked down at it to see I was heading west on an unmapped track instead of north to go back the way I came.
As it appeared to be a well used track and would eventually link up if it went far enough I carried on, a good decision as it linked up with the track to Pha Daeng creating a new loop

Then I ride through the Nam Mae Rit to reach the settlement, it was slightly deeper then it looked and in the wet season this settlement must be cut off
