Initially our afternoon plans were to go for a small afternoon hike with a few orphans as tour guides but Mama Mary suggested a hike through the hills at Mount Elgon would be far more spectacular and that if we paid for the fuel cost, Victor could drive us there. Rather than just going with just a few in the van we took advantage of this opportunity, fueled the bus and invite all of the orphans to join us on this adventure. The more the merrier! Victor then contacted one of Omwabini's cooks to serve as a tour guide and we were on our way. The scenery was spectacular and the experience was amazing!

This fast flowing mountain stream eventually makes its way to Kimilili and supplies the town with its water
Its never hard to gather folks for a picture
A bit worried that their hiking flip flops might not give them the needed traction as they scaled to the top
Camera photos often don't often give you a real picture of the elevation drops
