Sunday Morning Hike Klipriviersberg Johannesburg – 4 August 2019

It was very sad learning about the tragic shootings in Texas and Ohio earlier today.

It felt like Spring even though it is still Winter. Everyone commented on the superb weather. We had 27% humidity and the temperature reached a max of 23C (73F). Mostly sunny throughout. The wind picked up mid-morning but still pleasant.

Thanks to all who participated.

Young Mohammed was the Hero of the hike. We did 11K and Mohammed did much more than that because he kept running back and forth… Mohammed is only 5 years old, the youngest participant we have ever had! Congratulations to Mohammed and to Mom Riana. At the end of the 11K hike Mohammed ran to join other kids in the playground – he has unending energy.

Do you see it? (the Photographer “instructed” us to look to our right…)
Always soothing looking at and listening to the river flowing below

The Hero of the Day: Mohammed. Mohammed is 5 years old… he completed the 11K hike all by himself…

Look forward to seeing you on the next hike.

  1. Way to go Mohammed, that’s awesome!
    The news of all the recent shootings in the States is awful. Hiking is a great de-stressor, but I’m sure I don’t need to tell you that Tony.

Looking forward to your comment
