Close Encounter

So what if Tracey has already posted this picture on her blog. There is NO way I could pass on posting a picture of me this close to a lion on my own “Into the Wild” blog!

Before you start retroactively fearing for my life, know that this lion was extremely lethargic and had approached our van seeking shade – not lunch. When we came across her on the road, it was high noon, the heat was pretty stifling, and there weren’t any trees nearby.

Anyways, our trip to Masai Mara in Kenya was absolutely amazing. I hope to post more pictures from the safari just as soon as my film gets developed. Maybe by the end of the month…

Great picture! Holy cow! We didn’t get to see any cats when we went on safari with Matt, so we’re a little jealous. Looks like fun!

This is a great picture, and it makes what’s written on the back of the safari truck seem true!!

Yah, well, we got that close to a lion at the Kumasi Zoo. I guess the fence helped calm our fears, though. Welcome back to blogging. We’ll be checking in on you!
