|Me, overlooking Lion's Head and Robben Island (you can barely make out Robben Island in the background)|
I’ve certainly hit the ground running upon my arrival at Table Mountain National Park. In four days, I’ve walked a two-day hike on the People’s Trail (up the backside of Table Mountain); attended a lecture by a noted American in parks management, Robert Manning from the University of Vermont, on park capacity and protection of natural areas; and a meeting of a Cape Town group hoping to raise awareness of the Leopard Toad’s breeding habits. And I’ve yet to officially start my workweek! I’ll be a busy—and lucky—girl indeed!
Um, internet, phone, and well, electricity are sketchy where I am. Please don’t worry; I’ll touch base when I can, how I can.
For more pictures of my two-day hike on the People's Trail, and and to see especially more flowers found in the fynbos (FANE boss), see my Facebook page (you need not be a Facebook member to see these photographs): http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=102195&id=1239371142&l=2494eb87d2
