Kloof Corner Steps: Chinks & Lizards

Date: 22 January 2012

Location:
Table Mountain

Walkers: Helen & Brenda

For other walks on this route see the Kloof Corner archive.

Up this familiar route in a warm summer afternoon...




... was really hard-going in the heat! I took it slow up and still had to have a rest in the shade once I reached the top of the steps.



Spotted on the wayside: white chincherinchee (Ornithogalum conicum?).



And the bobble-buds of Berzelia.



And a long lizard sunning itself on a rock. I love his rusty colours.




As we walked down we passed a large crowd heading uphill. Must have been over thirty people, all huffing and puffing uphill.



We detoured along another path for a short distance, getting a slightly different view of this side of Table Mountain and the valley below.

I wonder how many people in Cape Town realise that this is there, right above the city bowl.
