Often a hike on Table mountain during the winter months is made even more spectacular by an approaching cold front.
The front approaches the city as a dense fog that moves in from the west. Thus Camps Bay and sea point are engulfed first.
The mist then slowly moves towards the 12 apostles and around Lions Head towards the city centre.
The mountain top and the Eastern slopes can still be broad daylight.
As the front approaches it begins to rise up the gorges. Slowly and surely pursuing you as you hike. But providing a lovely cool breeze as it can still be a warm climb
The front may bring some rain the following day or sometimes it just moves south missing us altogether.
