They call it a road… The way from Suam Border into Uganda is lovely.
But it’s a hard road!

On the ‘road’ back to Kenya
The old colonial hotel at Kaptagat
Complete with log fire, almost on the Equator, but HIGH!
The drop, almost a mile in altitude, into the Rift Valley. Wow!!! My favourite road.
The scenery in these Kenyan highlands is superb.
This could be Switzerland!
Mount Kenya reveals its snow. A lucky view for me.
Rapeseed north of Mount Kenya, with the great deserts stretching north.
Lost in the Aberdares Forest. This was remote!
Bck down the wonderful rocky road into the Kerio Valley. 24 hairpins, I was told – every one with a spectacular view.

The scenery at the bottom of the Rift Valley is totally different. It’s hot too…
