I was browsing through my photographs from a trip we took in 2010 to see the Mountain Gorillas in Uganda. Trekking through the mountains in search of the beasts was such an incredible adventure. It was so peaceful and unconnected. I didn’t want to leave and would enjoy an opportunity to return someday to see how the gorillas are doing.
We trekked through very steep terrain without any visible signs of a trail. Every so often, we would spot the gorillas off in the distance and so we would change direction and head straight up or straight down a mountain to attempt to catch up with them or get on the opposite side so they would wander directly in our path. Once we found them, we were able to spend an hour observing very quietly and this little one had us entertained as he hung from trees and posed for the cameras.
