    Took a couple of mates on a quick trip through he Wheatbelt of WA in search of wildflowers, unfortunately there wasn't too many about but it was a great weekend for just getting out and about.
    Headed out from Perth through Goomalling to Dowerin then Trayning and up to Billyacatting Hill for lunch and then onto our campsite at Elachbutting Rock (north east of Mukinbuddin).
    On Sunday we returned via Beeringbooding Rock and Bonnie Rock (an abandoned town site) back to Perth.
    A great weekend and a good chance to practice my photography.

    Thanks :D
    We found that lake by mistake (I didn't know it was there!) and I think we were lucky as they had some recent late rains which helped put some water in :):)
