We had a blast.

Fantastic views, accommodation and trails. The area is dry though and we desperately need some rain.

We went down diff-lock alley by mistake. Pics to follow later.

The Chalet was clean, fully equipped and well insulated with 240v electricity and hot running water.

It was a blast to stay there.

We went down diff lock alley by mistake - but came out unscathed except for Jaco's (4eJunior) side steps got a slight ding.

We only saw the diff-lock alley sign once we got to the bottom.

Lovely!

Thanks for the pix. Difflock alley looks like a thriller. I wonder what would be better: up or down?
