*** Route plotted here ***
Dom and I set off from the top of Kloof Nek, following the Pipe Track - the popular contour path that runs along the Twelve Apostles. Unlike the last time I did this walk, the weather was perfect this afternoon... it as a golden Autumn day and Cape Town had never looked lovelier.
We followed the meandering path across the hillside until we were right under the rocky buttresses of Table Mountain. Such an unusual view of the landmark from the side and behind.
There were a few ups and downs on the route, but most of the path was dead flat, through the fynbos. Very soon we felt very far away from the city.
Our two happy and excited dogs had the best time!
One the way back we could see some mist rolling across the Nek.
And the sunset was spectacular.
