Photographer's Note

The day when we arrived at our hotel in Drakensberg, the weather was very bad with freezing rain ( sleet ) and thunderstorm.
The next morning , the weather was slightly improved. So I took the chances and decided to go to Sani Pass and Lesotho Tour , no matter what weather. Luckily, the weather was fairly good.
Well, as you can see in the pictures, it was very misty on top of the mountain peak enough to see the everchanging colours on the slopes.
The highest point of the Sani Pass is about 2900 m. Definitely need a warm/windproof jacket. The only way to the top is by the 4x4 vehicle because the road is rough it can be very bumpy for some. The best of all, at the Lesotho border we got a stamp on our passport just being in the Lesotho for couple of hours and back to South Africa border again. Time for lunch in the highest pub of South Africa. Unfortunately, the famous hairpin twists view of Sani Pass covered with low clouds.
I'll add 2 more on WS.
WS1 - must have been a wildfire ( some patches ) during in the very very dry summer.
WS2 - an Adder snake I think. Was found dead on the roadside. Hidden dangers lurking , one has to be very careful while wandering on this rocky slopes.
