This is the place I want to be, right here, right now*, because it’s too hot…
It was a beautiful place to come across in the late afternoon, suddenly, unexpectedly.
We had the place all to ourselves – except for the frogs and a sentinel owl.
Every turn in the river was a surprise.
We found a cool blue pool, ringed by pines.
And watched the sun leave its last colour in the sky.

Boambolo Road, a left turn off Wee Jasper Road, out of Yass town (New South Wales, Australia). It leads to a section of the Murrumbidgee River.
The sign at the river states that no camping or fires are permitted.
‘Boambolo Section of Murrumbidgee River, Boambolo Road’ was listed on the Register of the National Estate in 1995. [http://www.envcomm.act.gov.au/soe/soe2004/YassValley/heritage1.htm]
