Nine Hurriers had the pleasure of walking Dot’s Dash this morning. It was perfect walking weather apart from the rather stiff breeze, but there were plenty of places where we were in the lee of the mountain so all in all it was very pleasant. As expected, the fynbos was amazing, with everyone blown away by the magnificent displays of Erica pillansii and E. perspicua. The persistent fires in the region have failed to do more than make a dent in the garden that we call the Kogelberg Reserve.
The path was in very good condition and one has to take one’s hat off to the Kleinmond group who do such good work, constantly improving the route and building steps out of huge boulders. They really must work very hard and we all appreciate their effort!
