Day 29: Table Mountain

Day 29, the 4th of July, was a really fun day for us.  Every other year we spend it grilling, at the lake, swimming, boating, etc.  This year we got to celebrate our freedom on the top of a mountain in South Africa with awesome friends!  It was terrifying, amazing and absolutely beautiful all in one!

Table mountain is probably one of the biggest attractions in South Africa and is listed as one of the 7 New Wonders of Nature in the world.

Sorry about the bad picture.  We were driving on the freeway at the time.

Table Mountain is named after its very obvious flat top.  It highest elevation is 3558 ft. And when the fog rolls in over the mountain, the locals say that the table cloth is on that day.

We drove up the foothills and then we got on these cable cars that fit about 60 people which cables you to the top.

The cars rotate around while you get taken up so you get to see all the views.

Once up there, we could basically hike the whole flat area.  It was so scary but the views were incredible!

And then Grant mustered all his courage for the sake of getting a great shot…

Thankful im not a widow now!

Aren’t these the most beautiful smiles you’ve ever seen?!

Luckily we got to snap some great shots before Palesa lost it.

This was such a fun experience and I’d highly recommend it!!
