What, no photo of those all important socks? It would take a pretty special pair to be worth a detour for me.

Hi Mike. The weather has mostly been great. The skies up here seem to carry on forever. In your time in Umtata you must have enjoyed similar views when looking north towards the mountains.

An odd photo. She’s so remote. Did you have to give her a time out for bad behavior?

I know very little about geology but I think it is as a result of same the big volcanic action from 180 million years ago that resulted in the koppies spread across the Karoo. The Drakensburg/Maloti mountains are the highest point on the escarpment that stretches in a U-shape from the north-west of South Africa all the way up to its north-eastern corner. There are some really dramatic sections but we are not likely to see the highlights which mostly lie mostly on the eastern side of the Drakensberg on the border of Lesotho and KwaZulu-Natal.

A remarkable landscape. Volcanic?

Thanks for posting the shot! Most cyclists avoid doing snakes. Good info! My Herpetology background makes this post special.

Thanks for giving it a go. I wasn't even going to try and get an ID for it.

Family Mantidae.

I can't get ID down any farther... seems there are about 43 genera in S. Africa alone! And many species in each genus. Who knew there were so many?

Bill, my botanical knowledge is limited to sections of Asphodeloideae so I can only accept your ID.
