One of our group is a geologist by trade. He told me that Zimbabwe is one of the most mineral-rich countries in Africa. It also has had a lot of geologic activity in the recent past, meaning that it has a lot of mountains. These aren’t really serious mountains, most are 4,000 to 8,000 feet, but it does make for some nice views. One the day after this picture was taken most of the group went for a 12 mile hike in the hills. I opted for the 2.5 mile trek with some females who thought a 12 mile hike in the mountains was a little too strenuous. Good, choice, I thought. Note that the largest dimension available for this picture is 1024 X 768 as it was uploaded at a very slow bandwidth from a remote location in Africa.
