Our first real exercise today in 5 weeks. Walked up into the Little Berg from Monks Cowl, a short drive from our hotel and the entry point into the National Park. Paid our permit fees and did a 3 hour return walk to a rocky outcrop called the Sphinx, an elevation of 1000 feet above our starting point. Quite steep to begin with and got really puffed and hot. Realised quite quickly that of course we are at an elevation in the Champagne Valley of 1500 metres, so at altitude and too much breakfast!
Amazing views from the Sphinx that photos can’t do justice. Just spectacular landscape, no wonder that the Drakensburg is a World Heritage site.
Arrived back at the hotel at 1.30 and had a light lunch with sparkling water, a one off!
Sat around the pool in the afternoon. Somehow lost some good photos from my SD card when doing a download. Stupid boy.
