Mount Sheba

For Wihan’s dad’s birthday last year, he decided that the family would head out to Mpumalanga and spend the weekend in the mountains at a lodge called Mount Sheba. On our way there we stopped in Dullstroom - a gorgeous little town with plenty of interesting sights...
I found this tree (anyone have an idea what it is?) and could resist taking a photo - I mean, how gorgeous is it?!SONY DSC This was hidden in the tree - tied around one of the branches. When I see things like this I always wonder what the story behind it is...SONY DSC SONY DSC To get to Mount Sheba you have to drive quite a while on a really bad dirt road. There wasn’t enough space in the car for all the baggage AND the food for the weekend so the cooler-bag went on the back and from all the bouncing on the dirt road there was a LITTLE accident... Yip, that’s our food for the weekend. Looks yummy huh? :)SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC We were pretty much IN a cloud all weekend and didn’t see much sun. I didn’t mind; it made for some awesome picturesSONY DSCWe drove down to Pilgrim’s Rest one day to go see the sights. Another quaint little town hidden in the mountains.SONY DSC Below: This must be one of the coolest photos I’ve ever taken!SONY DSC SONY DSCSONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSCSONY DSC SONY DSCLooks pretty creepy doesn’t it?!SONY DSCSONY DSC

We were supposed to just take a short route to see the sights but ended up wandering off the path, getting completely lost and doing some SERIOUS climbing (not featured here)SONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC
