On the road to Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve, Mpumalanga
I’ve been so busy posting about what’s happening Now, while at Grand Canyon, that I haven’t finished sharing my journey in South Africa. And there’s so much more to come.
After Joan and I stayed at Pilgrim’s Rest we hit the road for Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve and made our first stop at God’s Window, a very appropriate name for the expansive view of the Lowveld world below.
Called the mist belt because when the warm moist air rises from the Lowveld it cools and condenses bringing high rainfall to the dense growth and recharges the rivers below.
Along some of the trail, boardwalks cross over swampy areas.
All this dense vegetation provides a home to many creatures.
I sure would have liked the view these folks were getting from this ultralight.
Yet if God’s Window isn’t impressive enough we continued through the Nature Reserve and on to Bourke’s Luck Potholes.
