CSI: Hogsback

CSI: Hogsback Here is a photo of something I found while I took a 4 hour hike alone through the forest in Hogsback. Judging by this vicious crime scene, I can only assume that this bird got f***ed.   Not sure what animal ripped this bird apart but it was definitely something I didn’t want to encounter on my hike cause I was in the middle of NOWHERE.

Hogsback

Hogsback If you haven’t figured it out already…yes that is me sitting in a bathtub on the edge of a cliff overlooking a valley and facing the the Hogsback mountain ridges. I would have liked to use it but it was cold, I was lazy, and I didn’t feel like making a fire to heat the barrel of water connected to it.

East London

East London I had to take a brutal 8 hour bus ride to East London just to catch another shuttle for a 2 hour trip up to Hogsback.   This is a picture of the place I was about to stay at but didn’t. I had all my bags in the shack and I was ready to kick back and relax but then the shuttle to Hogsback came back to town and picked me up.  It would have been nice to stay here at least by the look of the this photo it looked nice.

View from my bed

View from my bed The color I feel is Gold cause this was the view from my bed in Hogsback. I really didn’t ever have to move cause it was…WHAM!…right there in front of me.  Even though my 55 year dorm mate was snoring up a storm, I really didn’t mind since the vista was spectacular.  Even at night while laying in bed I would just stare up at the millions of stars above me.  In the morning I’d watch the sunrise and in the afternoon I’d watch the monkeys play.  Couldn’t have gotten a better spot. ...

Shady Train and Penguins

Shady Train and Penguins The color I’m feeling is Warning Sign Yellow.   So I felt that while I was in Cape Town I should do something productive. Late in the afternoon I decided to go check out some penguins 1 hour south of Cape Town.  I took the local metrorail train and definitely felt out of my comfort zone cause I got on the wrong car.  I rode that car for 35 minutes only to realize that I was probably on the wrong one.  Some drunk dude sat down next to me and started mumbling some shit so I jumped off and took the next car over.  I would say that I felt pretty sketched out about the situation.  All...
