Spitzkoppe – wonderful rain 18 &19 April 2021

We arrived safely at Spitzkoppe and set up camp and were settling in to either a walk, a climb or a run. In fact the runners had already set out on their run when we were surprised by the most unexpected rain downpour – we were pretty soaked and even streams were witnessed pouting down the granite rocks of spitzkoppe.

After the rain – the walk was fresh and of course … a rainbow


The next morning we took the opportunity to climb the saddle (in the pic with Jules above -to the right) -a steep climb in parts but worth the effort.

From Spitzkoppe we headed down toward the coast stopping at the entrance to the Dorob nature area for a body stretch

then refuel of vehicles and bodies at Henties Bay

Henties was a quick stop the we headed north up the Skeleton coast on the “salt road” past the Cape Cross seal colony and headed inland to the solitude of Messum crater in desert surroundings
