This morning some of us hiked to the top of the local “Rock.” We were on the bus at 7am just after sunrise.
We arrived at the base of the rock and Tom, our leader, had to present permission and slip the guards a few dollars to let us climb. The guards are there to protect the communications equipment at the top.
The hike is fairly steep as the hill around the rock is not very big in diameter. There are at least four sections where the ascent is by ladder only cemented into the rock. Everyone made it up and down the trail safely.
The view at the top was great! We could see into Kenya and the local surrounding area. A perspective of our ascent can be seen in the picture below. Look closely and you will see the small white rectangle in the middle of the picture is our bus.
