Volcano Park, Rwanda

February 26, 2007

Our most thrilling experience was to climb through bamboo forests into Volcano Park in Rwanda, and meet a troop of Mountain Gorillas. We got very lucky and caught them sunning themselves outside the bamboo. The young juvenile walked right past us, and the two babies rolled to our feet wrestling. Photo op heaven!
