Nine of us set out this morning, led by Debbie. When we arrived at the Vogelgat Base Camp the temperature was 5 degrees Celcius, but it was a beautiful day for walking. Our route took us up to Quark Hut, where we had tea, before setting out for the Jeep track close to the Vogelgat boundary. From there we still had to climb to 516 m.a.m.s.l. before we started the downhill section to the Fernkloof Visitors’ Centre.
After all the heavy rain of the past week, it was pretty wet underfoot and the bridge at Quark was partially damaged, but it was a wonderful outing. We covered around 11 kilometres in 5 hours and (best of all!) we never saw another soul. The mountain was ours and we really appreciated it!
