Baakens Valley looking west

This is the view from just above the Settlers Park car park looking west up the Baakens Valley. The Baakens River has its origens just west of Port Elizabeth in the foothills of Lady Slipper mountain before flowing through the lenght of the city, entering the sea at the Port Elizabeth harbour. Most of the Baakens River Valley are protected open space of which Settlers Park forms a big part of. The majority of the lenght of the Baakens River can be followed through the city on the (Upper and Lower) Guinea-Fowl Trail. The dirt road in the picture is the path that the trail follows through Settlers Park itself.
