None more than the very impressive Valley of Desolation outside the pretty town of Graaf Reinet. The two places could not be more different - the orderliness of Graaf Reinet & then the vast, starkness of the Valley of Desolation.
We made the trip on a bright Winters afternoon as the sun was high in the sky. The views are simply spectacular - vast panoramas all around until we reached the top look out & walked to the view point to gaze over the almost alien landscape below.
Huge craggs lit by the fading sunlight accentuated the deep valleys & rugged landscape below.
Best of all was that we could take it all in without other people about - drink in the quiet & watch raptures working the cliffs for small mammals.
Such vast spaces & solitude are good for the soul ….
Do you enjoy places of solitude & quietness? Where is your favourite place?
