    I was amazed at how they scamper over the rocks without falling off the edge

    this one was the walk that sent tingles through the bottom of my feet, probably because I could see through the rails as opposed to the brick wall look outs

    That wall is waaaaaaaaaaay too llow for my liking & that couple is so nonchalantly standing there, leaning on it. :omg: Great scenery though. : :cool3:

    Great shot of the rugged landscape & those intrepid people at the lookout point. They have more nerve than I have. :lol:

    All these view are wonderful, Dawn. Your landmark mountains are so breathtaking & ruggedly impressive, it hard to realise that civilisation is so close.

    Love the bird & Dassie shots. They are fantastic. It is hard to believe that the rock hyrax is a member of the elephant family. :lol!:

    They are good bird shots, Dawn & do show their fearless character. Thought the Dassie was a little bear at first, in the shot above. :rofl: Silly me. :blush:

    Cannot blame you for getting the tingles on that walkway.. I'd have them plus my stomach would be churning somewhat. :omg: My back would be right up against the rock face, that is, if I ever went on the walkway at all. :o I notice the other people are standing back from the railing, too. :whistle:
