Monday Geology Picture(s): Some Views from the Cape Fold Belt, South Africa

Posted by Evelyn Mervine

Continuing with my recent South Africa theme for the “Monday Geology Picture” posts, here are a few views from the Cape Fold Belt. These pictures were all taken in late June 2013. Enjoy!


Approaching the Cape Fold Belt from the Cape Town side. The mountains are pink the late afternoon light.

Beautiful sandstone mountains.


The toll booth for the tunnel that goes through the mountains. There are also two beautiful passes over the mountains, but the tunnel is quicker and easier– and less stressful for those scared of heights!
