Today we walked with our post-fire monitoring group, up Adder’s Ladder and up towards Galpin Hut, before cutting back to the Jeep Track. This afforded an opportunity to monitor any fynbos in flower after the fire. We did not see many species, but there was a good showing of Moraea pyrophila throughout the area. Remnants of Mairea coriacea were also in evidence with rare Drimia hesperantha on the lower slopes. We found an unusual and unidentified Erica in one of the unburnt sections. Recent rain meant that there was good seepage in places and much new growth is anticipated.
