On Friday we had a relaxed drive north towards Parkes through the bright yellow of the canola fields and the relatively green pastures, stopping along the way to ice cream up and go to the second-hand shop in Canowindra (highly recommended). The HH area was in an open paddock, so we pitched tents and flies ready for the forecast heat and no shade. Friday night's moon rose like an enormous balloon over the horizon, just as the temperature plummeted! Guessing minus a few degrees. Just like a nice day in Norway. But the cool didn’t last long.
