Earlier this year I posted photos of the fire that devastated our mountains. The good news is that the plants seem to be recovering well, and parts of the mountain have already been reopened.
The day the fire started I was meant to run over the mountains, so I ran this alternate route to Chapman’s Peak instead, little knowing that just a few hours later it would be on fire as well.
You still cannot run sections of this road (well at least you are not supposed to).\
I remember it howling with wind and being freezing cold, but I am glad it is coming right slowly.
