Gawler Ranges Trip, South Australia "part nine"

Yesterday when our little touring party left the Southern Flinders Ranges we did wonder if we were doing the right thing with wet weather constantly cropping up in our path, especially around the Iron Knob area. Thankfully we pushed ahead down the road with weather improving as we headed further into the Gawler Ranges.

The Bluebush (Pearl Bluebush Maireana sedifolia) has always been my favourite native shrub in the Australian bush. In a good season the Bluebush will grow to a hight of one metre.

When viewing buildings such as these out in the bush I can't help but wonder about the people that lived in these places and the yarns that they could tell. Maybe now it is only the spirits that can tell these stories of what must have been a very hard and difficult life.
