Tell us the story behind your photo:
It was my second expedition on 8th-11th Sept 2016, and the weather conditions went from normal to extreme chilly condition, later I learnt that we were hiking in coastal highest point-Kenya, Vuria hills. The steep and weather conditions were extreme and at some point I was contemplating giving up, but that wasn't the reason why I started, after all it was a self challenge and I was competing against myself. It was one hell of experience but to date I appreciate the outcome, never giving up, I yearn to visit the place once again but this time round as an Award leader, it is the growth for me.
