    Thanks for that write-up and the pictures have come out beautiful.. The 18-55 IS ain't that bad now, is it? I also use the 18-55 pretty extensively and find it to be rather very good, considering the price of the lens..

    Yup George! I never saw you posting a pic or participating in a ride. Do you hate touring?

    BTW, nice footwear you have

    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.There were many guys on bikes. People in car would have definitely thought that I am mad . Because I stop in one corner to take photos and overtake them after some time. Some were even laughing at me. I didnt bother to keep doing what I was more interested at. More I climbed up the more fun and more chilled it was.

    I reached Ooty by 11:30. I went to boat house, it was fully crowded. There were lots of chicks too. The lake had become very dirty, there are not maintaining it well. I could see plastics all over . Then I had a Choc bar from there. I took around one hour rest there, then did a small shopping too. I wanted to take some horse snaps in the field. So I started from there looking for the place. Found some with out spending much time. Parked the bike near road side and went to field to take some snaps. Mean while got a call from Vinal saying they are leaving from GS Betta. They told they will wait me down hill near GSB.

    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.

    I reached Gundelpet around 5pm then from there went back to cousins house at Nagangode. Took rest for some time, packed my bags left from there by 6:30. I was feeling tiered and bit sleepy too, stopped in Mac Donalds and had 2 Mac Chicken .

    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.
