australian outback desert road over fogarty's claypan near oodnadatta south australia

Outback road near Oodnadatta IMG 6168 - 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.
