The elephants of Amboseli
by Judy Lester
I love the early morning light in Kenya. We saw a herd of elephants walking across the plain with a golden sky behind them and at first I was too awestruck to take a picture. It was very beautiful.
As I was leaving for the airstrip to head over to the Mara Mt. Kilimanjaro, shy all week, finally decided to show herself. As my driver and I headed down the road it was one group of animals after another. Zebras and Mt. Kili! Giraffe and Mt. Kili! Then, yes! Elephants and Mt. Kili! That's the pic everyone goes to Amboseli to get and I consider myself very lucky to have done so.
