@Gudstff, I believe those socks are mine. Hopefully a shepherd will find them useful :cheer: .

We had a nice lunch with Stijn and his wife at one of the small streams near the end, all in all a weekend to remember.

I see there was some unexpected snow on Saturday night in parts of the Northern Berg, including at Afriski:

It appears that there could be some rather significant rainfall over the Drakensberg over the next 2 days, as well as a possibility of snowfall on the escarpment:



At this stage there does seem to be potential for some heavy falls, especially on the high peaks, where up to 40cm may be possible!

Hey Jon - thanks

I see it did not last long, just a bit of snow left behind the lodge, but I did see that afriski still has cloud about so there is still some nice snow there.

It appears we're in for another round of spring snow over the course of today and tomorrow. With freezing levels dropping to a fair bit lower than last week's event, there is a possibility of snow extending to around 2300m in the South:

Drakensberg Gardens have confirmed on their Facebook page that there is currently snow falling at the resort. Rather unexpected!
