Hehe - yes Ben. It is Hanmer Springs, one of two spas I've visited on the mainland.

Post a pic.

Shouldn't be to hard, only 8891 kilometers long. :)

I'll start from the left and work eastward.

Little Gold Creek Border Crossing.

Correct, although the photo is more accurately described as Poker Creek, as it's on the Alaskan side.

Haha, I got rained on as soon as I crossed into Canada, so not that different.

Ah yes...I was thinking of the southern border, never occurred to me that there is another border between Alaska and the Yukon Territory.

Your turn to post PA.

Pa, G'day.

The Hiroshima Peace Memorial?

When Questacon (the old name) now known as the National Science and Technology Centre in Canberra was built, before the alterations, which have changed the building's look, the original building had a remarkable resemblance to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial. The building was a gift to our Nation from the Japanese. Lest we forget.

You are correct, Ground Zero.

Felt strange being there. Some family history.

Pa, thank you Mate.

What was I looking at, or where was I, in Northern NSW? From my last tour on the Bicentennial National Trail. I left the BNT and did a short side trip to a well known beauty spot, where I took this shot.

PS, I didn't give a raspberry about the Grafton to Inverell Cycle Classic ... or did I?

I'm not able to be on the web while touring, starting from sparrow's, tomorrow. I'm tidying up lose ends this evening, hopefully. So, having run out of time, the answer to the image above is ...

A shot of Cooraldooral Ridge looking towards the Mann River Wilderness. Taken from Raspberry Lookout on the Gwydir Highway. Here the Gwydir crosses the Gibraltar Ranges World Heritage Rainforest Region ... and so does the Grafton to Inverell Cycle Classic.

You all knew that! ... but were too shy to answer?

Anyone can take a turn.
