run, hike, hike and run some more


that’s the story of my weekend. rather, that is the story from Friday till yesterday. And since I can still feel my legs and there seems to be no part of the body that is extremely painful or sore, there is room to push it a little more. But I don’t want to tell you the story of how i got lost trying to find Shamata gate or how I found this trio who gave up on the hike after doing 3.5km or my friend who could not keep his feet on the ground. So maybe these photos will cover the stories i am unable to tell.

Happy week everyone.

    Very much enjoyed these! Love the ones where the trails go through the trees, but the panorama ones were impressive as well. Nice job!

    What is the dominant tree species in Kenya, Maka. Or were some of the trees the ubiquitous and conquering Australian eucalyptus, which are EVERYWHERE in a semi-arid zone!

      depends on the region given we have varying climatic regions from arid and semi arid to almost equatorial and highland climes that have different tree types.
      A lot of eucalyptus have been planted here too for commercial purposes, i think.
