Whilst riding across the country we were told several times by people in cars that, "it's all flat out there". You begin to realise when you go slow that's it's not actually the case. You pick up details of topography and undulations you don't feel or notice in a car. Almost nothing is flat on a bicycle, there were however a few times where it was 'actually' flat.
This is one of those. On the road to Meekatharra, WA giant flat intermittent lakes stretched both sides of a seemingly never ending flat. Where there was water, it was salty, leaving a white crust at it's edges and a stillness that was unsettling. Still though supporting life, birds, fish and inquisitive journeymen. Huge man made mountains erupt occasionally in a diesel powered search for gold. .
The only tree provided shelter for lunch.
