Along the Penhalonga Rd…

We chose to take the scenic route to Mutare from Juliasdale! This pic (below) was taken soon after we turned off onto the Penhalonga Rd.

    • Thanks – we were very lucky to get these pics – we were up in the Eastern Highlands for several weeks and had a few pretty dismal days where it rained and the mist hung low! Not good for photography. This day was our โ€œoffโ€ day and luckily for us it was lovely

    • Thanks – I thought of you several times when I came across some odd looking plant! Probably something awfully common! The vegetation is very different to what Iโ€™m used to here in Mat’land

  1. Thank you, Frankie – just gorgeous! I lived in Umtali from 1964 – 73 and it will always have a very special place in my heart.

  2. Oh! My goodness you have really captured the beauty of the eastern highlands.
    I was born in “Umtali” & my father bought land near the Pungwe Gorge (Brackenridge) & built a beautiful country cottage there near the water. We drove out there so many times so I almost know that road backwards! Beautiful. Thank you. Valerie

  3. What a lovely selection – the one with the house and hills my best. Oh the dusty road…sigh . The thin tar one….sigh xx

  4. Thanks for sharing – we really miss the place – all the lovely memories that you pictures bring back are priceless. xx
