Baakens Valley trail view

Yesterday morning I hit the trails in the Baakens Valley just off Alan Drive with Chaos Boy to go and find a few Geocaches I haven’t had a chance to do.  It’s been a while since I’ve been on them and just realised again why the area is so popular with trail runners and mountain bikers.  Here Chaos Boy is enjoying the view of the river below at the one spot on the trail.

Baakens Valley graffiti by Joff

Joff’s latest piece of graffiti down in the lower Baakens Valley literally has the whole city talking.  It even made television news the other day.  Last week I posted this picture on Instagram and a number of people have shared it via Facebook.  I really hope we’ll start to see a lot more of this kind of art around like they have done up on Johannesburg.  It really encourages urban tourism and get people into areas they don’t normally go to see it.
