About 20 km along the 1175 it was time to go exploring some tracks I didnt get chance to last trip, it was useful of the Police to have this map showing me where I might find some new unmapped villages

I am not expecting it to be to scale but who cares its a help as nothing shows on the GPS

Through a dried up tributary river but look at how much water comes along here going by the tree trunks in it

I am now down close to the main river and in the above photo it looks like this track would be more than two metres under water during the wet season
