This has been an absolute blast from the past for me. I have done all of the routes that you did but just not in one trip. Your pictures are stunning and mate, you are going to have to retract that statement that you are not an "artsy fartsy' type. You have an eye for a good pic and you can make stuff we see every day look so good! Thanks for the RR.
Also, huge respect, taking on Katberg and Baster in the wet.

Fantastiese kiekies. Hierdie thread gaan ek hou, want ons wil ook bietjie daardie wreld gaan verken.

Dankie vir die RR

All the pics were edited on the actual cell phones with a free app called "snapseed"
