Signs of Pilgrims Rest

Images of some of the vintage and historical signs at Pilgrims Rest
- a living museum mining village in Mpumalanga. 
It's the original mining town of the region and is still a beautiful place to visit.  
For those interested, it's close enough to Mac Mac Falls (see post below), God's Window and even the Kruger National Park - for more info on the town, here is a link.
 I hope to be posting more of the gorgeous and quirky signs over the weeks to come.

Hello Gena. It was quite funny as I noticed your blog on Jonkers blog to and came ove to look at it but did not leave a comment, then you came over to mine. :)

It seems that we were both visting this area round about the same time. As you might have gathered, Gaelyn from Gepgypsy was here and I took her to all the Sabi/Graskop area and then a week in Kruger, on down the coast as far as Durban, then inland to the Drakensberg. It was a great trip but as I had been there before, I let her take most of the pictures.

I forgot to add that I like the pictures you have on your blog. I also find all aspects of nature to be fascinating and take pictures wherever I go. Isn't this a wonderful country we live in with so much beauty surrounding it?
