Samburu-land; hiking in God's great-out-of-doors, where dangerous wild animals roam

Earth is drenched in God’s affectionate satisfaction.
~ Psalm 33:5, Message

Vince and I headed out at 7am for what ended up being a five-hour hike. Fortunately the tree cover kept the hot sun off of us as mid-day arrived.

Seems this structure has seen better days

The sun peaks over the eastern horizon

Chatting with some of Vince's buddies, Samburu warriors

When we left in the morning, the guard at the gate where we stayed said we had just missed a group of elephants strolling by. In fact, we saw many recent footprints and fresh dung!

At one point on our outing we heard a not-so-far-away leopard growling. Listen to what it sounded like by clicking here.

"Toto, I have a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore!" One thing is for sure, life in Kenya is never boring... ha!

Samburu raise goats, cattle, and camels
