What a wonderful welcome to the Park for me - it snowed in Mountain Zebra National Park last weekend!

Here are some photos of the snow in the Park:

And our rangers had to check on some of the fences in the snow!

Snow has almost completely melted by now so the Wilgerboom River and waterfalls are flowing strongly. All the roads in the park are open again.

Mountain Zebra, I see that was you first post. A warm welcome to the forum. :D I hope that we see a lot more to come. 8)

Wow, that does look cold, but very beautiful. That is some pretty heavy snow :shock: At least the ranger looks togged up and happy. Not too sure I would have enjoyed camping in that weather :hmz: but then when it comes to cold I am a total woess.
