Today I'm starting to take you on another road trip to the Australian outback and because of local COVID border and travel restrictions it is in the far west of New South Wales.
The back ground: last year we embarked on what is called the Darling River run down the river from the far north of the sate to the south west corner. But... rain interrupted the trip and some of the many dirt roads were closed. The river and lakes along the way were either very low or absolutely dry. It had rained in Queensland where the river's water comes from so this year the river is flowing and the lakes have water in them so we set off to fill in the gaps from last year and to enjoy the different landscape with water.
The trip from where I live to Louth on the Darling River is about 900 km with about 150 km of dirt and 2 day's drive so there'll be a couple of photos along the way before I get to the serious area well away from bitumen roads along the river.
To start with a gentle photo of the countryside in the central west of the state - a major sheep region. The sheep were freshly shorn and a little bit of sun shone on the pasture.
