I headed east along the 1317 but quickly headed south to avoid spending too long on it

Immediately I was rewarded with some greenery to look at instead of just the smoky haze

I must remember to do this again next time as long as I am not in a hurry

Now to enjoy this fun road as far as Doi Saket

Now heading north alongside the canal that flows down from the Ping

Two days ago and no flow here, either the outlet here to the canal has been cut or possibly another canal further upstream has been turned off

A very attentive dog

Finally I find a way to the confluence through someones garden, with their permission of course

Nothing spectacular but at least I found it

A short offroad detour to find a small reservoir

A lot of water in this one
IMG_0559.JPG
I thought this end was the overflow but I was wrong, water was flowing into it here

The Hom Dang Thai truck was doing its rounds so I purchased 3 kg for 100 Baht, that should last me three weeks

That water south of the confluence is up & indeed over the Weir above it has more water than has been over the last few weeks.

Did you check out the water across the other side of the Mae Taeng project on your travels? Unless you cross over, you wouldn't know it was there !

A couple of months ago I visited the Mae Taeng project then rode back south a bit before taking the bridge over the river and following a concrete road north to the 3052.
I noticed work going on with a new irrigation duct being made and noticed a large body of water too, I guess that was it
