Dullstroom is a three hour drive to the east and is located in the Mpumalanga (the M is silent) Province in a section known as the Highlands. This name is fitting because this town is at elevation.
Some of the unique things you can find in Dullstroom are, a clock store with the largest selection of clocks in the southern hemisphere (no, I'm not kidding), lots of streams - it's a very popular destination for fly fishing, a birds of prey rehab center, and some of the coolest temperatures in all of South Africa. It was still sunny and warm though.
Saturday afternoon my parents hung out at the hotel while Mr. Deep and I checked out a place called Wild About Whisky, a bar that contains the largest whisky menu in the southern hemisphere. They offer various tastings of numerous whiskey combinations served in small flights similar to a wine flight. I didn't have any whiskey, mostly because I don't enjoy vomiting in the middle of the night. So while Mr. Deep sampled I had some sherry (why I really don't know it just seemed like the thing to do) and played with the camera.

Sunday, before we headed back home, Mr. Deep and I went for a hike. At the top of the trail we were at close to 7000 feet!
Here are some pictures of the hike and the town.

|I love this picture!|
|This is nice but why am I walking in such tall grass where snakes can hide?|
