Table Mountain – One of the Natural Seven Wonders?

8th January 2009 – 4:21 pm

Well,  good news –  Table Mountain has made the first cut and is in with a chance of becoming one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.  Although the news did not come as a surprise to Capetonians it is good to know that Table Mountain as an icon is know beyond our borders and appreciated by all those who have seen it.
I believe sometime in the future there will be a second cut which will see the number of candidates whittle down to around 70 before the final decision which will see only seven chosen.   Of course there will be stiff opposition from canyons – the Grand Canyon and possibly the Colca Canyon which is actually deeper, falls like Victoria Falls and the Iguazu Falls and of course the Great Barrier Reef.  However we must surely be in with a chance. Table Mountain, as those who know it will agree, really is unique in its formation, its location and its flora – never mind the views!
I hope people will vote accordingly when the time comes and hopefully we will be celebrating here when our most famous landmark is recognised for its greatness and stature.
