The Nam Kaen reservoir is very low today

A brilliant clear sky on a cool refreshing morning.
My clothes are still wet from yesterdays soaking and I could do with a hot sunny days ride to dry them out

Now at the Huai Lapmuan Phuan reservoir and as I cant find the overflow I wonder if where my bike is parked is it

A quick drying dirt track like this is fun riding today despite yesterdays storms

A lovely sunny dry day in Nan today after yesterdays storms.
I heard it pissing down during the night but the roads were dry when I rode out

Brown water in the Wa
Nan 16/12/2013-img_2391.jpg
I tried riding a dirt track down to the Wa that I had rode a couple of times before on my Phantom but today is under water from the higher level of the Wa at the hydropower project
Nan 16/12/2013-img_2390.jpg
This was an easily rideable track four years ago when I last rode it but now its gone
Nan 16/12/2013-img_2389.jpg
I try another track to see if I can get to where the other one went but it soon goes down a steep hill and its the wet red shit so I leave it for another day.
I think there will be an alternative route as there were always people working down there

The water level is higher but it doesnt look like much of an area has been flooded and I doubt if anyone was displaced
