There are probably ten big creeks along this road but yesterday afternoon just two were flooded.

A not unfamiliar occurrence around the Flinders Ranges and the Outback which can catch out the unwary traveller or camper foolish enough to camp in a creek bed.

The actual downpour can be many kilometres away in the mountains, but a flash flood will have millions of gallons of water heading down from the mountains to nearby Lake Torrens.

It is all over though in a couple of hours.

    What a fantastic photo. Great to see so much water falling down on this beautiful part of the world especially in summer.
