Rivers of Flowers on Table Mountain
Our host on last Saturday's Table Mountain hike kept referring to scenes like these as "rivers of flowers." Seemed like an appropriate metaphor to me. Hard to imagine this unless you visit. Maybe a week or two remaining before the area dries up rapidly. There will be interesting wildflower viewing for another few weeks after that along the creek beds, but the large expanses of "painted" flats will be brown until next spring.
