This backwards-looking view gives a good idea of what the countryside and the views are like on this hike from the junction with the Cape Mabou Road towards Northeast Mabou.
MacDonalds Glen Road continues through the beautiful Cape Mabou Highlands on its way down to Northeast Mabou. It is now low enough that the view through the gap is of the sky and not of the lands beyond.
These lovely blue miniature wild flowers were smiling at me as I was resting on the return trip; I found them irresistible. While similar to those seen during the “bad stretch”, these are smaller and lack the gold-coloured centres the others had.
