That was a good hike - that hail storm on the second day was rather hectic though! I'll never forget having that long chat to Jason (a Mosotho, I can still picture him wearing his bright red pants). He spoke really good English (having lived in Durban for something like 7 years) and was full of fascinating information about the surrounding mountains.

4 entries with 2 months still to go. Perhaps the record for most entries will be broken? I believe the record is 15 - Summer Mist.
