Dot’s Dash 2017

Our annual walk up Dot’s Dash in the Kogelberg did not disappoint.  The weather was very favourable and cool, although there was a stiff westerly breeze blowing.  Only eight Hurriers pitched up, but they all enjoyed the day.  We walked 8.6 km and climbed to a height of 412 metres.

The flowers were very good, however, a recent fire meant that much of our walk was through burnt fynbos.  A storm around two weeks ago had caused major flooding and there were areas where there was evidence of very swollen streams causing considerable damage to the mountainside.  In the burnt areas the post-fire plants were showing well and we can look forward to a good crop of Orchids come November.
