Ok let's kick this off.

Monday Roll Call

This past Monday I awoke to this view from Easter Cave. Life for a Monday was very good indeed.

Fairy Tale Exit

Ntonyelana Pass as one finishes off the top steep section. This was the end of a complete Mnweni traverse and a lovely, almost fairy tale ending, to a great trip. I say this because just 9 days later our little one was born, surprising us by arriving a month early. The trip remains etched in my mind as the last little adventure as a non-father.

Taken close to Bilanjil Falls in April 2018.
We nearly didn't get out of our tents due to lots and cloud and mist around. With a bit of encouragement, we went to the escarpment edge and waited.... and boy was it worth it!
The early morning orange sun lit up the mist that had sunk just below the escarpment edge and we were treated to one of the best sunrises I have seen in the Berg!
