Only six creek between me and home and the rain is falling so hard the windscreen wipers are struggling to clear the water.

Summer in the Flinders Ranges and for another thousand kilometres north means occasional  unpredictable rains, swollen fast running creeks and what seems like oceans of water.


The next day the sun is shining but water is everywhere. Dirt roads have turned to sludge, creeks are still flowing.

This guy didn’t even stop for a chat.
