Back in Jarrahdale

Hi all,
          Well it has been a while since I posted here been slacking off again. todays trip was more of a test drive through the tracks of Jarrahdale. I just recently purchased my first true 4WD and just had to take it for spin off road, only light stuff to start with although we did go on a few rough tracks as we were exploring around, it was basically the same trip as the last one we did to Jarrahdale in my previous post, this time we didn't have to walk much of it, Our first stop was the Jarrahdale POW camp where we stopped for lunch and had a quick walk around.

Someone's make shift Camp site, there is suppose to be no camping here

what is left of the Main quarter

The powerhouse I think it was

The Wash House

After leaving the POW camp and exploring a few of the tracks not really finding much else, we headed towards Blue Rock and the Wetlands Trail, we only went for a quick drive through the track at the wetlands trail as there was quite a few Motorbikes racing around the tracks, so didn't really want to have a collision with one of them, I just stopped for a quick snap by the old oak tree, I am sure there used to be a table here as well but I am guessing it has either been stolen or just destroyed.

By the old Oak tree the autumn colours are starting to show

        After leaving the wetlands trail we headed towards Blue Rock but decided to keep going as we still had the Serpentine Pipehead Dam and Serpentine Dam to go, unfortunately the Pipehead dam was closed whether it still hasn't been open after lockdown or there is another reason I'm not sure and I was slightly disappointed as it is quite nice there and I haven't been there in years. 

    Anyway we went for a drive to Serpentine dam and the lower car park hoping to see a few kangaroos to take some snaps unfortunately there was none around today but there was a few people around after lockdown enjoying a day out, and the autumn colours were showing

    After leaving Serpentine dam we headed for home exploring a few tracks on the way we found one that was bit rough and a small climb and the car seemed to handle it all well.
