Swanfels Summer

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

These high ridges and flat-floored valleys of the eastern Darling Downs are like the corrugations on a iron roof. The land was built of a series of basaltic lava flows draining WSW from the Main Range Volcano. The ridges remain forested and the valleys have been cultivated for barley and fodder (planted in winter) and sorghum, maize, fodder, sunflowers (summer).

Thank you for stopping by to enjoy this landscape, flyingdutchman. I certainly enjoy exploring this area for it is almost always colourful and attractive, especially after rain.
