Heading Down

The snow made our original plan of driving the "Roof of Africa Road" across Lesotho impossible, so we headed back down to Underberg after our hike.




Lesotho Peak

A view of the peak we climbed onto the shoulder of.
Had there not been so much snow, it would have been possible to get to the very top.




Sentinel Rock Thrush

The morning light on the snowy mountainsides was beautiful, as was this rock thrush puffed up against the cold. This was one of two species we saw at Sani Pass, both of them endemic to southern Africa.




Large-billed Lark

Our original plan had been to hike up Thabana Ntlenyana, the highest peak in Lesotho, but that was impossible due to the snowy conditions (which are actually abnormal, even in winter).
Instead we did a smaller hike, up to the shoulder of a peak above the pass.
There were very few birds around because of all the snow. At one point a Cape Vulture flew directly above us, but this lark was the only new bird of the day.




Drakensberg Rockjumper

One of the major target birds of Sani Pass, the rockjumper, is very easy to see. This one was hopping around the picnic tables right outside the Sani Top Bar.
This is a male; there was a female as well, but unfortunately I didn't get a photo of her. The female has somewhat more subdued plumage.
