Back in the bush…

Posted: June 10, 2011 in International

It took me awhile to post some of my favorite wildlife photos from the Umfolozi and Hluhluwe Game Reserve (So. Africa), but here they are. It was my first time seeing an elephant in the wild and getting a glimpse of a lion. The lion’s image is burned in my mind, simply because he left the scene before we had a chance to snap photos. Amazing!!! As far as the elephant — I am obsessed with elephants and apparently have been since I was a child… I had a stuffed elephant that I rubbed the tusks off when I was young. Mom, of course, sewed them back on for me…thanks Mom. Do we still have that stuffed elephant? 🙂

I can’t wait to go back to South Africa — the bush is easily one of my favorite places in the world. It’s where I truly want nothing to do with technology, where I put all of my worries aside, and sit back and enjoy God’s beauty.
