Monday, June 30th, Graskop, South Africa


Every so often, there is this little sign along the roadway which says “Highland Meandering”.  It’s meant to indicate access to a river, but I think it aptly describes our journey today.  We meandered up a long low incline until we got to the foothills of a mountain, had lunch, and then climbed up over the top.  
A short distance down the other side, we visited Pilgrim’s Rest, where we explored South Africa’s original gold rush town.  Finally, we drove lower into the valley below to our hotel in Graskop.

The town sits atop an escarpment, not unlike a bench seat.  Tomorrow, we head over the knees and down 1,000 meters into Kruger National Park.
