the conQuest of Wolfberg Cracks

The name alone alludes to a quest worthy of knights and kings: Wolfbergskeure (Wolf mountain cracks) in the Cederberge, between Citrusdal and Wupperthal, Western Cape, South Africa. But in the absence of such figures of notoriety the conquering will be done by the Von Joubert Family Explorers.

First we had to get to get the disclaimers behind us, warning us about fire breathing dragons and ogres with gigantic unhealthy appetites. We did indeed find colours in fiery red – proof of the presence of fire spitting dragons and in rich ochre but fortunately no smelly ogres.   However photo 3 and 4 shows an arch inside the crack and it is actually in the from of a giant  M – I never new McDonalds had this much influence! But the M in turn was proof of the presence of ogres, as that is the source of their unhealthy appetites…

Many a nook, cranny and passage was explored by beautiful people (being the female members of the Von Joubert Famliy Explorers).  And after clicking the photo above the battery of the camera became a flattery, which was non flattering for me due to my absentmindedness in not charging it 😦 , but I still enjoyed the quest 🙂

    1. Thank you Dawn. On the last photo you will notice white dots. Those are drops of water from a faint waterfall. Was looking forward to photograph it, but that was to be the last photo as the battery was exausted!

  1. Het darem op wiele die berg belewe. My gunsteling plek is die Engelsman se graf….. wens ek het die storie van die blomme geken. En dan natuurlik C.L Leipoldt se graf. Ek het die grootse skrik op daardie berg gehad toe ‘n massiewe bobbejaan ‘n klomp bobbejane gejaag het. Julle is dapper om per voet daardie berg aan te durf.

      1. Het altyd so jammer gevoel vir die Engelsman wat so alleen in ‘n vreemde land begrawe lê. Ons toerboek het vertel dat daar altyd op (ek dink) sy verjaarsdag blomme op sy graf neergesit was…. en niemand weet wie dit doen nie. Of dit waar is weet ek nie maar die kinders het grootoog na die storie geluister en met baie aandag na die graf gekyk.
