There are numerous marshlands near the main Ramu River due to the alternating hydro-dynamics of the river course. Many ibis, birds fishes and many other insects and small mamals inhabit these marshes. Though these marshes are protected areas violations by people (fishing etc) or dry season fire ravages often occur. But the marshes strives on.

As you travel from Lae past rumion (previous pix) you cross the leron bridge and on to Ramu Sugar's Leron plains or as the road signs indicate " you are now entering ramu beef country"

Umi further up the highway past the Mutzing station is a roadside market 7 days a week. Travellers up and down the highway usually stop for a "buai", coconut or a coke (that seems to sprout from trees even in the remote areas of PNG)

Evenings begin early in the markham valley below the cloud cover. Sunlight only reaches the mountain peaks above the clouds to the north of the markham valley and mountains to the south block off the sunlight. A beautiful contrast viewed from the highway approach to Umi bridge at the upper end of the Markham valley past Mutzing government station

The location of the Gusap (or Ramu as the area is widely known) in the centre of the country and apex of two valleys, the Markham valley from the west and solomon sea (via huon gulf) and the Ramu Valley from the north and the bismark archipelago, makes it ideal as a transit point for migratory birds. These pix shows migratory birds that traverse the area during the months of November to February. They are feeding on grass seeds and insects on the park lawn in front of the Ramu Sugar Administration Block.
