For the students and everyone: The Great Rift Valley

Posted in Kenya by Lynn Ouellette on 02/21/2010

For my last post before I show some of the art of the kenyan kids which I have to complete scanning, I decided that I wanted to include some of the photos of the Rift Valley since they are quite beautiful and because the Rift Valley is such a geological hallmark of Kenya. It actually extends for about 400o miles in Africa and divides the country of Kenya in half. Kenya’s most beautiful lakes are in a chain in and around the Rift Valley and we traveled down into the Rift Valley to get to the National Park at Lake Nukuru.

The Rift Valley was also the site of the discovery of some of our earliest hominid ancesters like “Lucy” and where a number of anthropolgists including the most famous, the Leakeys, made many of their important discoveries.

Stay tuned………art by the Kenyan kids for their friends and ambassadors of good will in Maine is coming soon!

    Dear Lynn,

    I have a client that absolutely loves your pictures of the rift valley and would like to use it as a background on there company website.
    Could you please let me know if we need to give you credit anywhere for the use of your image and any costs that you would desire for the use of one of your pictures.
