On Table Tops

And in my fourth year of living in Cape Town, the Table Mountain hike was finally done.

Exhausting and exhilarating.
Fatigue-inducing but fun.
Physically draining yet refreshing. 

The plan was to have began hiking by 8am. Big big mistake. It was a high of 30-something degrees that day and by 8 the sun was already scorching! And then, the minor issue of not actually having started at 8 but at 9am. *ahem* We should have began hiking before 6am!

We began the hike in a group of about 12 people. By the time we were getting to the top we had fragmented into little groups of about 2-3 depending on our pace. I was somewhere in the middle. Not as fit as I’d like to think I am. LOL.

The heat made the hike taxing. Also, I hadn’t had breakfast because I left the house in a big rush. So many times I thought to myself: ‘I did NOT sign up for this’. But the view at the top made it all worth it.

I haven’t edited the pictures. They are straight from my phone. I would have liked to do a slight edit on some of them but time is not being nice to me at the moment.

Enjoy!

The top is actually quite flat.

Warning signs. And we still took this route down. Ha

And it turned to rock climbing
