View from Flagstaff

Saturday, July 14th 2018

Flagstaff is quite a prominent landmark, visible from many places on the island. I decided to check it out. Rain showers were passing through and it was very windy, but the walk to the top is supposed to be easy so I thought I'd try it regardless of the weather.

It was easy - most of the way it could easily be driven in a 4WD. But as I got onto the steeper path, I got caught in a sudden heavy downpour. It was extremely windy and I thought for a moment I would turn back. But I thought it should pass soon, and carried on. The cliffs to the north of me began to reappear from the cloud.
