Over Rotsberg Mountain

Yesterday, Renee and I walked up Droekloof and over Rotsberg.  The weather was perfect and by the time we had descended the zig-zag to Voelklip and returned home via the contour path, we had been walking for just short of two and a half hours.  Luckily this is an area that was unaffected by the recent devastating fires, and the veld on top of the mountain was especially beautiful.  There appeared to be more birds that usual, possibly because many that would normally frequent Vogelgat had moved in.  We were lucky to see Ground Woodpeckers and a Cape Rock-jumper, as well as a few Cape Rock Thrushes.  As usual the flowers were abundant  and the highlight was a magnificent Crassula rupestris.
