One More Trip to Kenya

Rhona Lewis

We’ve visited lots of places in Kenya, a country teeming with wildlife and natural beauty. But we’ve saved the best for last.… This time we’re going to climb an enormous mountain. It’s so tall that, even though it’s on the equator, where the weather is mostly warm, this mountain is topped with snow. Now imagine seeing tens of thousands of animals storming across the savannah; a huge expanse of vast, grassy land. We’re going to fit that into this visit, too!

Beth Firestone
