I grew up in Montana. Beautiful, wild, wonderful Montana. Rivers, mountains, valleys, wide open spaces, and fresh clean air.
Thus moving to the busy, crowded, dirty, loud city of Nairobi, Kenya has proved to be quite the transition. Enter the grace of God. It is only through His goodness that I have been able to adapt to this place and enjoy it too. Never the less, some city escapes are required for former country girls to stay sane. Good thing Kenya boasts endless opportunities for recreation and exploration!
On Good Friday, some friends and I decided to take advantage a particularly close attraction, Mount Longonot. The mountain is actually a dormant volcano in the floor of the Great Rift Valley. The top blew off a long time ago, leaving a vast crater. It’s a good hardy day hike, especially if you decided to go all the way around the crater after you summit the rim. If you find yourself with the chance to hike Mt. L, do it, the whole thing, totally worth it!
