Hiking trail - Maree

Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.
- Rachel Carlson

During my horse riding days, we used to go visit some friends on horse-back up in Hillside, about 10koms from us, taking a short-cut through the brick yard up this little trail, passing the Pelindaba rocks I sketched in a previous post. It is beautiful here, with prickly ferns, indigenous wild flowers and a large variety of wild grasses to sketch and photograph.

It's not really a hiking trail, just a short-cut used by the locals moving between Hillside and Vlakplaas, where we live, which cuts out about 5kms, a lot when you're on foot!
