Mt. Longonot Kenya

Another highlight of our group weekend in the Rift Valley was climbing up Mt. Longonot, an old volcano which last erupted about 150 years ago.  It is one of Kenya’s national parks.  The hike was not a long distance, only 3 kms each way, but due to the altitude (I live at sea level, or at least that was my excuse), it was a little tougher than I expected.

At the top, although it was cloudy and not great visibility, we were rewarded with a beautiful view of the large crater, as well as a smaller crater that looked a bit like an afterthought.
