Joggers: Only me

This afternoon I decided to do some altitude. I started on my standard Coetzenburg route, all the way to the ruin of the hut, and then headed up Stellenbosch Mountain. I ran all the way up to the First Beacon. This is the first time I've seen the fire damage and it is quite devastating!

That time of the day...

Steep downhill towards Stellenbosch

At the beacon

Very brown and burnt Stellenbosch Mountain

More fire damage... check the brown patches in Jonkershoek behind!

At least it was easy to find the single track on the way down...
