The peak of Longonot where I have been training for bigger climbs over the years. You can clearly see the sharp transition from the higher altitude green fields to the dry environment lower in the rift wally surrounding Mount Longonot
Longonot is a small extinct volcano in the Rift Valley, it has a steep ascent and is well suited to train for bigger and more difficult climbing. This Saturday I was training in climbing to the peak in a brisk ascent. Beautiful blue skies without even one cloud, Kenya in February.
