There is a city under the cloud!

Winters can offer some of the most beautiful hiking in the Cape. We get wonderfully clear, windless days that are a wonderful temperature for hiking. We also are sometimes given the most amazing sight as a cold front approaches the city.

This is in the form of a thick bank of cloud that hangs in the city bowl and around Camps Bay. Once above the cloud however you can be in the blazing sunshine.

 

The 12 Apostles and Camps Bay under a shroud of mist

Yesterday I climbed up Lions Head. At the start of the trail you could hardly see more than a couple of meters and we wondered if we would get any views at all. However 5 minutes into the climb we were well rewarded for our efforts.

Under there is the city bowl!

And the view from the top was spectacular

Wow! Table Mountain is a sea of mist
