Blue Nile Gorge in Ethiopia

I decided to post a few more photos from Ethiopia this week.  We took a day trip from Addis Ababa, the capitol, to the Blue Nile Gorge.  At the first scenic overlook, not surprisingly, there were some locals selling baskets.  Buying  local crafts is a good way to get people to pose for photos, and the crafts make excellent gifts.
Birds of prey used the up draft winds from the canyon to glide and circle around to try to spot a small rodent or other food.
We were surprised at how green the countryside was in much of Ethiopia.  Mny areas looked more like Tuscany than the drought-stricken land a few years back when most people became aware of everyday living conditions in Ethiopia.
We hiked down a side canyon into the Bue Nile Gorge and were treated with cascading waterfalls
This is a view across a part of the Blue Nile Gorge.  The Blue Nile Gorge is 250 miles (400 km) long.  In places it is 4,900 feet (1,500 M) deep, which is almost as deep a the Grand Canyon.
