Fish River Hike | Day 2

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.

 

Here the men are after their first night without beds. And how blessed were they to find Desert Horses?! And so close?!

 

Fish River Hike | The Decent

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!

Before the gents said goodbye to civilization, they made a stop at Canon Roadhouse for one last breakfast. A breakfast that did not consist out of pre-packed Pronutro and water.

Here they are at Canon Roadhouse. They all share an immense love for engines for all sizes and enjoyed the display at Canon Roadhouse.

Travelling Tuesday: Fish River Canyon

Fish River Canyon

It has been a long time since I’ve browsed through these photos, but since my dad is currently doing the 5 day hike of 90 kilometers through the Fish River Canyon, my heart can not helped but to be tugged in a very southern direction.

If you haven’t done the hike, this is it! You have to do it! I’m not much of a hiker, but the Fish River Hike should be one everyone’s bucket list.
