Although I was soaking wet, I was squealing like a girl .... My poor husband and father-in-law watched me ride up and down, up and down; after about a hour or so my father-in-law left.  My husband finally persuaded me to ride somewhere else.  boy, Was I having fun.

LOL that looks fantastic!

Or to put it 100% correctlly.   :mwink:  Known as Smitskraal, the well known crossing over the Baviaans river by the R332 road.  :thumleft:  Smitskraal also marks the longest river crossing in the Baviaanskloof.
