Walking above Franschhoek

This morning Piet led 16 walkers on an interesting trail above Franschhoek.  We set off in a northerly direction from the top of the pass, in weather that looked threatening, with cold wind and damp cloud around.  Luckily it soon cleared and by the time we reached the Vista viewpoint, we could look down on the beautiful Franschhoek Valley with it’s neat farmlands and mountain backdrop.

From there we continued to the Lookout above the Wemmershoek Valley for even more spectacular scenery, this time in more pristine condition with no development other than the dam.  It was a fine destination and we enjoyed the break and the opportunity to just sit and take it all in.

Our walk was a total of 7.4 km and we climbed 360 m from the parking spot
