Happy Friday everyone!
Today was a public holiday over her, so to celebrate we went on a 5 hour hike, that was really filled with almost all my fears. A ladder made out of tyres that just didn’t feel safe, and just went to far into a cave, I was overcome with fear and wanted to cry so I decided not to do. The suspension bridge that people (Men) kept jumping on to make it extremely wobbly, like any sane person I waited till everyone crossed, before making my own SOLO attempt over. I ran. It was an extremely beautiful hike, but really long, I wished we took one of the escape roots to make it a little bit shorter, the last hour was a little bit boring and felt like it would never end. We had chats about the hobbit’s from lord of the rings and I recited lines from it to ease some boredom and make the walk feel shorter. It really just did not work.
The end of the hike you have to go on a little one seater cable car that you have to pull to get yourself over the river, if you didn’t have much momentum you really have a hard time pulling yourself to the other side.
It was a lovely hike, filled with beauty and will do it again in a heartbeat. If you are ever in Johannesburg I really recommend Hennop’s trail.
^^ Beautiful river rapidly flowing.
^^ This was when I was calmly trying to get over the bridge…It started shaking…I ran.
^^ The bridge over the river.
^^ Clear skies.
^^ This was a random cave, that was really dark, without a flash light we decided not to attempt going in.
^^ This view is mystical.
^^ The last escape route we decided not to take…. BIG MISTAKE
^^ I forgot to take a hat….really regretted it, but hey walking around like a pyramid seemed to help some shade.
^^ This tree is something special.
^^ I decided to 90″s it.
^^ This building seemed really awesome, but all that was inside was a wasps nest.
^^ Little blue tractor
^^ walking amongst the trees.
^^ Just taking some photos.
^^ Some people clearly did not see this sign.
^^ I kinda look like grumpy cat here, but nature is best enjoyed with some silly time and a ridiculous hiking outfit.
^^ Tire ladder.
^^ Pretty flowers along the trail.
Enjoy the weekend everybody!
