Fogarty's claypan near Oodnadatta IMG 6166 - This vast flat area, north of the outback town of Oodnadatta, in South Australia, is known as Fogarty's claypan. No vegetation other than an occasional tuft of grass thrives here, and when rain falls, the road that crosses this seemingly endless and barren stretch of desert, and that leads from one distant horizon to the other, becomes an impassable quagmire.
