Mallee Wanderings at Lake Gilles Conservation Park South Australia

I decided to spend a weekend at Lake Gilles Conservation Park, the lovely Mallee habitat just draws me in like a magnet, not to mention I can spend days there without seeing another person!  The weather was cool, but sadly cloudy which was not helpful for photography. Everything was fresh after the large rainfalls earlier in the week and a lot of salt bush was literally under water between Port Augusta and Iron Knob.
Here are a few photos taken over the weekend.
