Samburuland; capping off our trip with a game drive at Samburu National Reserve

The two impulses in travel are to get away from home and pursue something - 
a landscape, people, an exotic place.  
~ Paul Theroux, American travel writer and novelist

Beauty was created by God for a purpose: to give us the experience of wonder. 
Wonder, in turn, is intended to lead us to the ultimate human expression and privilege: worship.  
~ Steve DeWitt, Eyes Wide Open: Enjoying God in Everything

The greatest wonder is not the creation but the Creator. He is beautiful.

Vince and Julia's vehicle had a mechanical problem in the middle of the reserve... with dangerous animals all around us - lion, cheetah, leopard, elephant, buffalo, and hippo! At just the right time, there was actually phone network allowing Vince to call and get advice from a mechanic friend. The two guys succeeded in making the repair with what was on hand.

Believe it or not - - it was 98 degrees while we were there. Whew, that's hot!

I don't get into Kenya's game parks and reserves very often, but whenever the opportunity comes my way, I enjoy it immensely! The wonder of it all does indeed lead me to worship the Creator!

These signs are posted on the nearby highway quite often, warning motorists of the possibility of wildlife on the road.
