Masi Mara

We spent the next three days in the Masi Mara. The sunsets in the Masi Mara were beautiful. The sky was huge. I'm so used to having Mountains cutting off the sky on at least one side. It was amazing how open it was when there were only rolling hills to cut off the sky.
The Migration of the animals to the Masi Mara was in progress when we got there. There were thousands of Zebra and Wildebeest everywhere. The zebra have really good eyesight, but a poor sense of smell. The Wildebeest have a very good sense of smell, but poor eyesight, so they migrate together. We saw Zebras fighting several times. We saw a ton of animals here, so I'm just going to post a bunch of pictures.

There are more, I just haven't had a chance to get them onto flickr yet, so you will have to wait for another day.

Is it just me, or does the long hair on the wildebeest make it look like the whitetrash of animals?

LOL! They totally are like the white trash of animals. Apparently they are very stupid. Like if they see a lion, they'll run a few yards, and then forget that they've seen a lion and start grazing again.
