Karoo - Day6 Leg10 - Misty section

We had wondered how bad the visibility was going to be in the mist, made up of cloud coming over the peak of the mountain, but when we got there it was nothing like as bad as we had expected it might be. Not cold nor wet. The sun even came out in gaps in the cloud every now and again. We stopped off at "The Top" took some pictures and then set off down the mountain. Saw and even managed to get a picture of a Klipspringer on the side of the mountain next to the road.

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 and motorbike hire 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.

Riding into the mist at the top of the pass

"Die Top" = The Top - can't see the sign for all the tour company stickers

The Mist wasn't nearly as bad as we had thought it might be. Not too wet or cold.
Moments of sun came though the clouds lightening up the area

Looking out over the green valley below - not much to see

As we dropped out of the bottom of the cloud it was fine again
