Day 3: Border Village to Port Augusta

The longest of all the drives. Halfway across the Nullarbor I was told that there was a big storm coming.  The worst in 50 years. I was quite keen to get to Port Augusta by nightfall and copped a speeding fine as a result. As it happens I spent the last hour or two of the drive in the dark, and was a little anxious as a consequence. It got dark as I passed Iron Knob, which was fascinating. I would have loved to have lingered there to take more photos, but with a storm approaching and the dark gathering, I had to keep going.
