heebie-jeebies. I decided to trust my instincts and cross over to the north side of Devil's Peak which overlooks the city bowl.
Taken from Signal Hill on a different day
After wasting these two hours I easily made it to "King's Block House", and then the fog started rolling in from the north. I could hear traffic below me but couldn't see the city bowl. I kept going up until I couldn't see more than 20 ft in front of me. Alas I decided to abort the mission for another day. I didn't want to become another story about a tourist having to be rescued on Table Mountain. Below are a few of the pictures I could take on the walk back.
Other than this hike, my life has been pretty boring. I have been settling into my life as an academic and I must say that it is a little painful. Most of my days are monotonous. I get up, walk the quarter mile up my hill to work, I stay there for several hours, walk home, make dinner, watch videos, go to sleep, and repeat. Nothing worth blogging about, which should explain my lack of posts over the last month.
