    Yes, another river.

    Should be relatively easy, given it was taken last week and there's a number of regional endemics in frame.

    Somewhere that's had a lot of water lately. I don't recognise those trees. SW WA?

    Was indeed a lot of water, some 6m above normal low summer flow in this section of river. Salty too.

    Tree are E. rudis, flooded gum, South West's version of the river gum. They also happily hybridise with each other in the overlapping section of their range.

    Yes to Blackwood, which section? And bonus points for how long flood front took from upper catchment to sea.

    Geez, it's a long river...guessing here. Nannup? Bridgetown?

    Hmmm, maybe 10 hours for the floodwater?

    Very good. Actually just below Sues Bridge. Day before it was low flow, knee deep, paddling with my daughter. Next day it was nearly breaking banks, massive flow of warm, clearish salty water, almost silent through the dry summer forest.

    Almost exactly one week. Very low gradient river system, actually upper reach around Lake Grace rarely connects. Flood 'front' was moving around 6km/h but actual mass of water within flow was moving much faster.

    I often use Sues Rd when driving to Augusta, same distance as Bussell Hwy without the traffic and with a real feeling of being away from it all. Such a good quality road, even has passing lanes. Not that they're needed, saw about half a dozen cars in the whole 70kms on the busiest day of the year recently, Australia Day !!

    Ask BHP why that roads so good.... a few vehicular speed limiters get tested on Sue's.

    There's a few bollocks still a-stinging from the 90's Beenup sand mine fiasco.

    The old Alexandra Bridge also washed away in an January flood, 81 or 82, can't exactly remember, was still smaller than a local water rat.

    'Choss' would assume it's rock, looks like dried mud cliffs to me?

    Border Cliffs area? Somewhere on the convoluted Murray system around Bookmark Biosphere Reserve.

    Did some citrus picking right on border overlooking that area years ago, looks familiar.
