Walk to Moonshine Pass

Seven of us set out on Wednesday to traverse Moonshine Pass (accessed from Vogelgat Nature Reserve) but unfortunately Max retired early as she had had a very long walk on Monday and did not feel up to the steep climb.  Luckily for the rest of us it was not too hot, but we still took around five and a half hours to complete the 11 kilometres.  The well-maintained paths and excellent views ensured that we had a comfortable and enjoyable walk with abundant fynbos along the way.  Once again, we saw the unusual Dilatris viscosa.  The pool at Quark provided a welcome respite for some, and we were lucky to see the pair of Verreaux’s Eagles and hear a couple of Fish Eagles on the way down.
