This weekend we have had a ball exploring a remote trail in the Langeberg Mountains between Barrydale and the Grootvadersbosch Conservancy. Some old trails have vanished and some that continue to exists as rock walls between the patches of unique mountain fynbos
The journey involved fellow adventures and mountain legends: Keith and Michelle Moodie who lead the way in breaking trail and finding little fynbos gems.
The journey involved an amazing 29km hike/run across an old route that was barely visible and ending well outside Barrydale Our trusty pilot, James Moodie, kindly ferried us back to Barrydale for a beer and steaks at Bistro Blues. Our only complaint was that the TVs screened rugby rather than the Olympic mountain biking. We considered challenging it but wisely decided that the Barrydale crowd would beat us in a TV remote arm wrestle. So we drank more wine, while Michelle did a few push ups (no one knew why) and contemplated the next adventure.
