After leaving Lone Creek Falls, Joan took me to Mac-Mac Falls, yet another spectacularly plunging sight at 213 feet (65 m).
This national monument is linked to the historic South African gold rush of the 19th century. In an effort to easier mine from the Mpumalanga reef escarpment gold-hungry Scotsmen tried to get the river out of their way by blowing it with dynamite. The result was the twin waterfalls.
Along the trail we saw this unknown lizard…
…and dragonfly sunning on the rocks.
Joan warned me not to eat the toxic foliage of the Belladonna that bobbed gently in the breeze.
We continued on our journey and visited even more waterfalls the next day.
