Climbing Table Mountain – Flickr pic of the day
Says Ru558ll, “This picture is of me, Russ, and my brother-in-law Dan about to climb Table Mountain. It was taken at Kirstenbosch as we prepared to climb Skeleton Gorge, the steep hike up the Mountain from Kirstenbosch. Once on top, we walked to Maclear’s Beacon and then to the top of the cableway. We had intended to climb down to Camps Bay, but the clouds suddenly came in from the sea. So we walked to the reservoirs and came down Nursery Ravine to Kirstenbosch again. We had a wonderful day – all the better for it being sunny, but not as hot as it gets in the summer.”
Do you have images of Cape Town you’d like to share with us? We’d love you to join the Cape Town. Live it. Love it. Flickr group!
