Its Snowing in our Parks!

It's very cold here in the Frontier Region Parks...we have snow in three of our Parks :shock:

And in Mountain Zebra National Park -

And in Camdeboo National Park - still awaiting photos of the Valley of Desolation under snow.

In Addo Elephant National Park, we received some more welcome rain - over 20 mm last night and early this morning.

Oh wow - that is surely unusual to have snow in 3 of the Parks at once? Must look really special. Thanks for sharing the pics Megan :clap:

Also so pleased Addo has had more rain.

You do not know what you are up to :big_eyes: It is cold, wet and gets dirty! It might look nice as a phenomenon, but snow = cold and after a couple snow balls and a snow man with coal as eyes and a carrot as nose.......... :lol:

Thank you Megan looks very..... :hmz: Unusual :thumbs_up:

Theuns, in december I'll bring a bag full of snow for you only :lol:

It looks so different especially the hartebeest in the snow as at least we here in the North do expect to see deers here instead :thumbs_up:

Thank you :clap: :clap: :clap:
