Table Mountain Top and Bottom

Summer 2008

When Ashley first arrived in Cape Town back in June, we went up to the top of Table Mountain but it was a cloud ridden day that blocked any and all views.

Now in August, which actually is winter in South Africa, the weather cleared up in Cape Town to attempt another ascent.

And by ascent, we ascented via cable car.

Up to the very top, which you can hike, but why expend the energy when a cable car can skip the boulder ridden fields for you?

Looking down nearing the top, the majesty of Cape Town comes into view: Lion’s Head, downtown Cape Town, and Robben Island out in the ocean.

Cape Town is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, blessed with natural geological formations and a vast ocean to its south.
