Kijabe Hospital rests on the steep slope overlooking the Great Rift Valley. The picture was taken from our bedroom window peering above the trees to see Mt. Longonot. Mt. Longonot is a young volcano rising to 2776 meter above sea level. It is thought to have last erupted in 1860. Longonot means a mountain of many spurs or steep ridges.
Is is a national park and just short drive from our house. A favorite day hike of visitors goes up the mountain and then circumnavigates the crater rim.
I have not yet made this hike and am just waiting for some visitors to join us.
