          Thank you all. Here is rest of the log and pics.

          @sksy - No couldnt go there... Can I guess that some one ?

          Climbing uphill was really good. After 25 + hair pin bends I could see fog every where.



          I started back from Ooty by 1pm. I took the same root back. The down hill roads were more wide and better than when I climbed up . Soon I realized that I am in the wrong route. Some how I missed it some where, I am still not able to figure out. I took the Gudalore root back. I felt that this route is familiar to me, actually it was. This was the route we used to take years back when we come to Ooty. The ghat section with tall Silver Oak trees, I had a small flash back about my childhood. This time the only companion to force to me start riding was the rain. It was drizzling every now and then. The road was really good this way till Gudalore.

          By this time I was feeling hungry. I stopped near a road side tea shop and a double omelet. After this I stopped only once before Gudalore. It was near that beautiful valley.I knew that I am going to spend some time here, so I called up Vinal and asked them not to wait for me. I was there for about half an hour enjoying the greenery and mountains.

          After Gudalore the roads were not good, but since I like doing offroading, I kind of liked it. Then I reached Mudumalai. Saw some tamed elephants there. From here took the road to Bandipore. This is when I saw what I have been looking for. Saw tow small elephants behind the bushes. I stopped the bike and in fact they were not there they were five. There were two kids as well. I had never seen such small elephants, not even in discovery or national geographic channels. They were so cute. See for your self. Many people stopped and started taking snaps. It became too crowded and a bit of traffic jam to. Then I decided to clear the place.



          Then straight back to Bangalore followed a Sandro for some time. Then I made him and later a Scorpio to chase me. Reached home safe by 9:30, Aur Kahani Khatam ! - Danchu for reading

          Overall the trip was good. Now Every trip I am learning something new about my CAM. But still I am not happy with the way I am taking photos. Its not comming out well when I see it on system. I think I am screwing up with some settings. Hope by time I will be able to click better.

                          After all these years of experience riding in the forests, aswin is becoming a wild-life photographer.

                          Aswin, buy 70-200 F4L lens. U will be in the forests all the time.
