Karoo - Day5 Leg13 - Twisted Rock

We followed the road which in turn was following the river, and we came to a gorge, or "Kloof" as it's known in these parts, where over time the stream had worn its way through the rock. There were some very interesting shapes in the rock where although now very much as hard as rock, it almost still looked like a sort of liquid mud that is being pushed, squashed and contorted as the mountains slowly move and unfold.  A slow motion liquid wave. Of course all that happened way back when and it seems to be frozen in time.

We spent about 2 minutes looking at the rocks then realised we had a way to go yet and time was not waiting for us. We were also getting hungry and needed food, so kept moving on to Steytlerville.

This is the daily blog from Africa4Adventure.com. A short series on the Karoo Motorbike tour we took on during September 2011. See the plans for the trip blog here: Planning a 6 day 2500km route through the Karoo maximising dirt
More South and Southern African motor cycle tours on our list of tour route summaries are available, where we explore these sorts of motorcycle tour routes. Just choose one of our events and reserve yourself a place on one of the future motorcycle adventure safari events.
