South Africa – August 2017
23 August 2017
Drakensberg South … Hoarfrost in the morning, an orange sun disk over the mountain range, right in front of my room near Underberg. The hiking gear is repacked, I am well prepared – I think so. The drive up to Garden’s Castle is already more than impressive: high canyon remnants in the most adventurous shapes, the colours of the landscape harmoniously put together, everything shines for all it’s worth, the blue of the sky wins today. The walking rhythm to Pillar Cave is found soon, as is the inner peace during a rest in the middle of a river bed.
Today on the mountain, tomorrow evening I will fall asleep close to the Indian Ocean … I am in South Africa!
