Table Mountain, South Africa

About an hour north of Cape Town, South Africa, on Route R27, West Coast National Park provides a totally different view of the coast and wildlife. Recommended! On your return to the city, watch for Rietvlei Nature Reserve, south of a small town named Table View. If the tablecloth (clouds) are covering Table Mountain, stop for a moment and observe Cape weather in action. It was from there, in October ’07, that I took this picture, about six miles northeast of Table Mountain, seen looming over Cape Town. — FRED KOEHLER, Orange, CA
