April showers, and May showers, and friggin’ June showers make for restless bikers! And in case anyone thinks “pshht, a real biker rides in the rain”, they weren’t in Kenya this season. The valley has been absolutely hammered. Roads washed away, lakes appearing where they never were before. It’s been wet. But, finally the deluge turned to drizzle and we organized ourselves for a two-nighter self-contained camping trip to our favorite places: Mt. Suswa, the steaming dormant volcano, and the Ewaso Nyiro “muddy river” down below the Nguruman escarpment. Braaaaap!
