Orpen dam - instead of looking at the dam , look to the left .

"I had never noticed it in till january despite being there many times , ones attention is focused on the view in front of you , unless you look around you will not take note ."

Ndloti , again well done :clap: I considered Orpen dam , but as I recall , you look down , even to the hills opposite to the left of the viewing site :hmz:

Now , somehow , I had it in the back of my mind that I may also have seen that rock somewhere , and have been racking my brains about it .
Well , I have now checked some pics I took when we visited Orpen dam in October last year , and lo and behold , I do have a pic of it :) . Will download and post . :)

Ndloti :clap: :clap: :clap:
I have been to Orpen Dam and never noticed! So in future wherever we stop I will have a good 360 degree look around. You have taught me a lesson. Seems you should ask the next one, I can hardly wait!

This one should keep you busy - it is alongside a seldom travelled gravel road to nowhere ...

Near the end of the S64? I think they call it the Nyala road.

Yes Ndloti, this road is seldom used. S146 - Mopani to Stapelkop Dam. Keep them coming.

Well done Oryx and Ndloti :clap: The S146 is one road I have never driven because we never go to Mopani :doh:
