Fish River Hike | The Decent


On the 7th May 2017, Henrico and 5 other gents, including my dad, went to Canon Roadhouse, close to the Fish River Canyon to start their 5 day hike.

I begged him to take a camera along. A tall order for any hiker trying to save on grams. But he did and over the next few weekends, I’ll share a bit of the beauty of the Fish River Canyon.

Most hikers will tell you the decent into the Fish River Canyon is the most difficult part of the hike. Personally, I suspect, this is because it is your last distinct memory you have, before everything else just melts into one big memory. In the canyon, time has no meaning besides the beginning and end of every day. Don’t get me wrong, the descent is enough to make any knee wobble. But the whole Fish River Hike is an experience to behold. And one, my husband seems convinced to relive as often as he can.

Here the five gents are descending into the canyon, and low and behold… catch fish on their first night for dinner!
