Olduvai Gorge

I see Ele at Homepaddock has a very nice poem based on Olduvai Gorge in Tanzania.
So here is a photo to go with it.
It is a very dusty but well worthwhile deviation off the road between Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti. The gully has been eroded right back to the bed rock so offers a wonderful slice of geological time and animal history, including us humans. On the last visit I was very impressed with the little museum and a local student gave us a very interesting explanation of it all.

Thanks Lou,

That adds more meaning to the poem which, is this week's feature on the Tuesday Poem blog.
