Piekenierskloofpas by ash Piekenierskloofpas by ash
Another shot taken on the way to N7 between Citrusdal and Cape Town. This one is from a lookout point on a mountain pass called Piekenierskloofpas (an Afrikaans name; a kloof is a ravine and a pas is a pass, but sadly I have no idea what a piekenier is). Is the tree a bluegum? A wattle? I'm not sure. I suspect it's not indigenous. I love this pass and the valley that stretches out before it. The N7 charges straight across the floor of the valley right for the hazy mountains in the distance then at the last moment :) (Smile) swings up the mountainside, around and over the top.
