New and old Houwhoek pass

South Africa, Western Cape, Botriver area

I'm into geocaching
A friend tried to find a cache on the old Houwhoek pass, without success
I found it quite a while ago, and wanted to check if it's still there
Took the tar road up the new pass







And then turn-off to the old pass, where tar meets gravel



There is still a train running on these tracks



Stunning valley



Ground zero, alas, no cache



Keep on the tracks



Went up a hill where one can actually see there are two bridges on the old pass



The road is quite sandy and a lot of loose rocks after the last rains



Stunning road indeed





The end in sight



A final resting place, not today



Botriver town



A well deserved cold one



What a nice trip, indeed
