Went to Doi Tao to see the water level & despite the recent rains, the Ping is not flooded this year. The entire floodplain can sometimes be completely inundated.
On the way back, I stopped just north of Hot to see the ongoing raping of the mountains.
Then directly across the 108 at this point, is the entrance to Wat Tham Tong, a meditation retreat and a pleasant walk in the forest.
Met a brave dog on 4 wheels, a happy character with plenty of attitude.
