I don’t tyink that you can ever tire of the view from or the view of Table Mountain. This shot was taken from the upper cable station view a view of Lion’s Head in the foreground, with Robben Island in the distance. If you are wondering what the red packs and ropes on the right are for, the answer is abseiling equipment. Yes if you are brave you can pay to slide down the side of the mountain on climbing ropes. While I am sure it fun I think I will stick to shooting the pictures.
Last Sunday, Lois and I went to the top of Table Mountain on the Cable Car (thanks to Table Mountain Aerial Cableway for the free tickets). It was a beautufully clear day, and you could see for miles and miles. Of course, the view from the top is amazing!
The first shot is of the city bowl (business district), with Lion’s Head on the left, and in the distace you can see Robin Island, and the beaches of Blouberg on the right.
And the next shot is of Lion’s Head with one of the cable car’s in the foreground, and once again Robin Island on the right. You can walk to the top of Lion’s head in about an hour or so, and it is fulled with lines of people climbing to the top on full moon nights.
