My Best Shot

My wife and I live in Baltimore. We visited South Africa in October during its springtime. The scenic beauty of Cape Town, at the southern tip of the African continent, is captured in this photo. I am standing at the top of the 3,500-foot Table Mountain as one of the Aerial Cableway cars nears the top of the mountain. The cable car rotates 360 degrees as it ascends and descends, so everyone gets a great view. The mountain peak in the distance above Cape Town is called Lion's Head, as it resembles a reclined king of the jungle.
