Its been a while since I last blogged as have just been so busy on the mountain. Despite the drought Cape Town was exceptionally busy this December and more and more people opt to hike instead of just taking the cable car.

I’ve met an amazing number of people of all ages and walks of life. The youngest aged only 5 made the trek all the way from Skeleton gorge in Kirstenbosch gardens to the cableway station. Smiling the whole day.

Here are just some of the happy hikers from December 2017.

Best luck for 2018 from everyone at Ridgway Ramblers.
