Camping with Kaitlyn

This first week of January has given us a little time to rest, catch up, and spend some time together as a family after a very busy November and December.  This week I (Glenn) took Kaitlyn camping on a mountain on the van der Merwe's farm.  S.W. van der Merwe joined us just before dark and left again early in the morning to bale alfalfa on their farm.  Sorry I didn't 
get a picture of him.  We had a lot of fun. 

We slept right up at the top of this mountain in the picture.  There is an overhanging cliff hidden by trees just under the top of the mountain. 

We had a campfire and roasted hot dogs and marshmallows.  You can see the overhanging cliff here.

The sunset was just incredible!

This is the van der Merwe's farm from up on top.  They own more than 1800 acres but most of it is leased at the moment.  S.W. has around 100 head of beef cows on their part.  He keeps really busy raising enough food for them for the winters.
