Walking behind Napier

Peter Albertyn kindly led us on a pretty severe hike in the mountains behind Napier yesterday.  It was on a path that he himself had cleared some 18 years back and it was, accordingly, very narrow and poorly defined, so much so that I could not trace it on Google Earth.  He said that it was around 8 km long and fortunately the weather was quite cool, so we were not too stressed, but it was certainly rugged and quite tough going.

For the botanists there were some unusual and interesting flowers along the way and the scenery was superb, with views as far as Cape Agulhas and the Strandveld on one side, and the rolling Ruggens on the other.
