Monday Geology Picture: A View from Judas Peak, Hout Bay, South Africa

Posted by Evelyn Mervine

A view from near the top of Judas Peak, October 2012.

Yesterday (Sunday) I went on a hike up Judas Peak, one peaks in the Twelve Apostles range, which flanks Table Mountain and overlooks beautiful Hout Bay.¬†On clear days, there is a gorgeous 360 degree view from the top of Judas Peak. The picture above shows the inselberg of Lion’s Head,which is another great peak to hike. I feel very fortunate to live in such a beautiful part of the world and to have a group of friends who enjoy hiking and other outdoor activities. Now that I’m in South Africa more-or-less full time, my husband and I are going to try to hike with friends at least one weekend a month. So, I’ll probably share more pictures from our hikes in the future.
