On Wednesday, John and Carol decided to can the walk in the Kogelberg to Harold Porter because of the recent fire and opted instead to take us along the Contour path to Elephant Walk, up to the Jeep track and then back via Boekenhout Kloof. It was a very pleasant outing with overcast conditions initially, so we didn’t get too hot. No less than 19 members turned up and, judging from the comments, everybody enjoyed the hike and the scenery. We walked exactly 10 kilometres and not only saw some wonderful flowers, but were entertained by a troop of around 45 baboons, who were showing off along the Jeep track. Its always a pleasure to see wild life on the mountain and not in our gardens – would that it could remain so.
Unfortunately I was once again out of my depth with the flower names, so would appreciate any help. Just leave your comments.
