I've run all the 'known' roads on the Keiskie farm and for this run is was time to explore a new area... which meant going off-road. I ran to the biggest gorge under Keiskie Mountain and then headed up to the first steep contour. I made a decision to stay in the middle of the cliff as far as I could. I discovered the cave of a predator (probably a Caracal) and sat in silence absorbing the epic views a number of times. I came back via the road at Witvoet in very hot weather.

This is the view of views!
Discovered this new (old) column
