In typical Taylor fashion, Mark had some surprises in store on route to the planned passes for the day.

The pass was not technically difficult, but inclines were steep and lots of rocks to contend with. With Mark leading the way, we manage a good pace to keep the air moving around our overheating bodies

This basically looks like one of my nightmares :biggrin:


Shame about the cow strike man.  We were at Joe's place the week before and had quite a few animal run ins. Cows on the Dullstroom road, plenty of goats everywhere and a very suicidal donkey close to Joe's.

The riding was fantastic and scenery to match






Henry was eating a lot of dust in the dry conditions
