Monday Geology Picture: Airplane View of Table Mountain

Posted by Evelyn Mervine

Airplane window view of beautiful Cape Town.

Yesterday morning I flew back to Cape Town after a business trip. I arrived a little after 7 am and was treated to a stunning view of Table Mountain and Lion’s Head as I flew in. I’m sharing a picture I snapped of that view as this week’s geology picture. Here’s a closer look as well:

A closer look at the mountain.

I am lucky to live in such a beautiful city! However, you can see that the city is looking somewhat brown and dry, due to the drought and water restrictions. No one is watering their gardens!
