We start our hike on a dirt road – a one-and-a-half-hour walk on flat terrain. It is dusty due to the multiple trucks using the road. You might need to have your mask on.
After the dirt road, you will traverse the beautiful William Hill. It has three steep ascents and an easy descent (different route from the ascent route).
We were not so lucky to find the sun at the summit. It was windy and cold.
However, we did manage to get a few fire shots.
I enjoyed the hike. I was familiar with most people. Making new contacts has started coming easy for me as well.
On the trails, I’m at home.
By 4 pm, we were done and heading back home. We were in Nairobi before dusk fell.
