Photographer's Note

This is the third of the Drakensberg Mountains taken from the top of the Amphitheatre. Although the image was taken close to the middle of winter there is very little snow at anyone stage.. The nights are thus cold always reaching below freezing, and when morning comes and the sun shines it turns into wonderful warm days for walking.

In a previous posting I mentioned that the transalation of the Afrikaans- Drakensberg is "The Dragon Mountains. In Zulu the mountains are called uKhahlamba-- the transalation being - " The Barrier of Spears".. I prefer the Zulu transalation.

The range is over 200 miles long reaching over 3300 meters (or 11000 feet) above sea level
