I would have taken a pic of the monument there but it was dark. Luckily I got a pic, bit blurry though as I was setting camp, were you can see the monument in the background. farm4.static.flickr.com/3069/2775680772_855a0cf5e8_b.jpg

 

Check it out - no petrol(see gauge) 3am in the morning and I couldn't be bothered riding 40km back down the road to a campsite that may be shut and the sun was due to rise around 6am. So I just camped off down the embankment out of site. Sure got a shock when I woke in the morn!
