I wonder if these have a significance or whether it was just the children playing
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
Time to enjoy the 1342

Slightly overflowing
Image
Not far downstream a new smaller weir is being constructed to feed a couple of irrigation canals
Image
I take the 4018 then a dirt track off of it to visit three small reservoirs close to each other
Image
The Nam Ming reservoir
Image
I am standing on the concrete overflow and the water level is quite a bit lower
Image
Now at the Yang Nga reservoir
Image

Image
The overflow doesnt look like water has flowed down it recently
Image
Looking down the overflow
Image
Next is the Rong Hang reservoir
Image

Image
Extra capacity is wanted here by the look of it
Image

Image
Now a shot from along the 1024
Image
Theres a turning to the left that goes down to the river and some small waterfalls
Image
I start to ride along this single track but park up and walk it

The team at work

Image
Well its certainly green further ahead
Image
The 1024 has more than its fair share of curves
Image

Image

Image
I take a dirt track to my left that shows on the Esri as going down to a river
Image

Image

Image
The dogs soon come out to greet me
Image
I ride down to the water and I can hear it but not see it
Image
Half a roast chicken, roast potatoes, cabbage , cauliflower, broccoli and gravy for 230 Baht at Tonys Place.
