Table Mountain Fire

Image001My friend sent me these picture of Cape Town.  Apparently a British tourist walked up Table Mountain and left a burning cigarette butt that created a huge fire. 

We were in Cape Town last year and there are no smoking signs everywhere, on Table Mountain,
specifically for this reason.

My heart goes out to all the people of the area.  The gusts of winds that come down from the Mountain at this time of the year are unbelievable.  This fire must have spread quickly and created serious problems for the people of Cape Town. 

Such a beautiful city.  Table Mountain is one of the most incredible spots.  The topography there is unique to any other place in the world.  What a horrible disaster.Image004
