As can be seen from the route board there is various routes one can take:
After some deliberation, a route was picked and we set off.
The route was about 10km which took us about 3 hours to walk. The start was at 96m and the highest point that we reached was 470m. The hike is mostly in the shade under the forrest trees. It is a very gentle hike. Here is the route from Runkeeper that we completed.
It was a nice sunny day when we started at the bottom at Kirstenboch Botanic Gardens but when we arrived at Maclear’s Beacon, the miss has come in and we could hardly see in front of us. Just show how dangerous hikes up Table Mountain can be.
Before the miss set in we had some great views from atop of the Mountain.
Flowers on top of the mountain is always beautifull. Unfortunately the Disa is not flowering yet and Proteas neither. However saw some beautifull flowers.
Over the past 2 weekends, I have been helping friends, Melanie & Hendrik, renovating their flat which they going to rent out. Above picture shows the view from one of their windows. How goes the saying, Location, Location, Location – how true is it about this. Cannot think of a better view anywhere in South Africa, in fact the world. Well except maybe the view from my new IBM Office.
This is the picture that met me on my way to work this morning. Table Mountain with its cloth. Old Cape Townians know that this is an indication of lots of wind. And true to its word – it is very windy in Cape Town at the moment.
For those that live in and around Cape Town will in all likelihood know where this photo was taken from. Those that are young at heart or not so young at heart, with love in their eyes ,has probably spend some time in his/her car making out here. The road is called “Lovers Lane” because of it beauty at night when Cape Town is light up with all the street lights. Some time ago even Table Mountain was light up but now with the power crisis this does not happen anymore.
