Constantia below, Muizenberg Peak in the distance. Towards the rock scramble.... Another view...... View toward Orange Kloof. Map

After almost two weeks of intense heat, humidity and bush fires, finally some very welcome cooler weather..... Unfortunately with low clouds  and a howling South Easter, the views were non-existent.

A wee bit of scrambling! Just before dropping into the ravine. Approaching Myburgh Waterfall Ravine. Early morning view to Hout Bay. Map

After finding Disas in Skeleton Gorge last week, we had to go looking again in one of the best places to find them - Myburgh's Waterfall Ravine. The harvest was abundant!!! More pictures from last year at

Success!! A stunning Red Disa. Anne Marie climbing the ladders. ... and into the forest. View of the mountain from Kirstenbosch. Map

It's that time of year and the search is on for those elusive orchids that only flower for about five weeks a year. So you can imagine the surprise and delight to find a clump of them close to the path near the top of  Skeleton gorge!! From there it was to the dams and then back to Kirstenbosch gardens via Nursery ravine.

An excellent climb to the middle table for those who are tired of  Platteklip gorge and the crowds that zig zag their way to the top that way. Also great in hot weather because it is in the shade for much of the morning.....
