True to form, the weatherman got it wrong again yesterday. Thank goodness! If the predicted rain materialised, we would have had a pretty miserable day on the mountain. Eight of us headed out to the du Toit's Kloof mountains at the crack of dawn. We hiked to the overnight hut at Kromriver where we stopped to boil water for coffee. After this customary 'breakfast' stop we continued on - the photographs below show the beauty that surrounded us the rest of the day.
We had a new hiker join the group on this walk and I have to hang my head in shame today as she was the only one who didn't moan and groan when the going got tough! Welcome Catherine!
I still have to post pics of the two previous hikes - will do that soon...
Finally, today it is exactly one year since we tackled Kilimanjaro. How I wish we could do it all over again!
We suspect that this is a 'Duiker' spoor. To read more about this little antelope, click here.
Even from the back, this little flower is just perfect...
As always - nature didn't disappoint! The customary heart shapes were scattered all along the path!
