I just returned from my second visit to the Murray River in Victoria. The Murray is Australia's longest river and the level of the river is just dropping now after many months of flooding.I wanted to see for myself what the river looks like after the flood. Many areas are still not accessable by road so a boat is the best way to view the river. The photos here are of the river red gum trees that line the banks of the Murray below Barmah. It was remarakable to see the tangled root systems of these tough old trees.
