Hiking and trail running on the Cape is a game of pot luck. One minute the sun is shining, the next you are enveloped in swathes of cold mountain cloud. We recently went running along the Table Mountain contour path towards Devil’s Peak and stopped at the ‘Breakfast Rocks’, normally a great place to have a snack and take in the view. Not this time. We were met with very limited visibility and a bit of drizzle for good measure. We did see some Proteas in bloom though and a huge spider on its web. Anyone know what it is? I have included a high res image of it and a short video of the Armageddon-like clouds. 🙂
