“South Africa has some superb wilderness that matches US parks – without the crowds. That’s why we hire a pickup and take dirt roads some of the time (although van Rhyn’s Pass is actually on one of the three tarred main roads going vaguely north/south). I feel guilty about not taking more pics, but it was a holiday, not a professional location shoot.
“One of the problems with things like the viewing area at the top of the pass is that it is difficult to get away from the rusty chicken wire erected to discourage tourists from taking a space walk. The choice of viewpoint is very limited.”
