As promised, a few photos from our recent trip to the northern highlands of Tanzania... Click on any photo that you would like to see larger.
Early on the 22nd we came across 5 elephants in open land outside of the game parks. They were moving along slowly, probably heading to Lake Manyara. Seeing them was a good birthday gift for Byron. They had big tusks :-) This one didn't want his photo taken.
We stopped and bought yellow and red bananas. I later regretted not buying a hat for Trevor!
We sat on the rim of the famous Ngorongoro Crater and toasted Byron's 48th with cold sodas before driving on to Loliondo.
We spent one night at Andre's camp in Loita (and heard elephants trumpeting as they passed close to us in the night.) Thanks for the neat tent, Masons!
I always cry when we get to Loita. The kids grew up playing in this stream. Wouldn't you cry?
I took my morning bath in this shallow pool below Andre's camp. There are hot springs that feed this stream and the water wasn't cold at all.
This is our Maasai Mum, Ngoto Milai. She has been close to our family for 17 years.
I took this photo for Carly Jane. Car, this is the same tree we ate our breakfast under in July. You made us look up and close one eye so that our vision went two dimensional and we talked about how cool God is to make this lace.
Sometimes the kids ride on the roof for a while. A 360 degree view of Africa is a fine thing.
The mountain had just puffed out a cloud of smoke but I missed it. The light grey color down the right side is new lava flow since we camped here last summer.
