A nice eucalyptus forest comes on the way from Mysore to Ooty, just before the Mudumalai view point. If you are planning to visit Ooty over the weekend, stop over here, pull down the window and take the fresh air. Its awesome.A dated (5 year old to be precise) travelog is here for those enjoying a lazy weekend: http://mysore-ooty-kodai.blogspot.in/. For others, go out and catch the fresh air anyway.
Happy Weekend. Happy Friday.
