On the day of Denise’s Easter Egg hunt we went a bit earlier and took some of our hospital volunteers on a hike to see the escarpment. It’s still pretty dry and brown but Nakpanduri has had a couple showers so the green is starting to appear.
The day after Christmas (Boxing Day) went once again went over to Nakpanduri to visit our dear friend Ms. Denise. After having lunch with her we headed to the cliffs to do some hiking and exploring. Here are some nature shots I took:
The Blacks are in town visiting for a couple weeks so we decided to take their whole gang and a new volunteer up to the ‘scarp. Trey was excited to show off all his favorite climbing places to the other kids. However, while going through a crevasse Trey has dubbed “Fat Man’s Squeeze” one of […]
Another volunteer means another trip to Nakpanduri’s escarpment – one of Trey’s favorite things to do. This time Preston Moore from South Carolina served at BMC with us for a month.

Nakpanduri is a village about 45 minutes northeast of Nalerigu where there is an amazing escarpment. Heidi and I visited it last year with Elisabeth Faile and today I joined a team of volunteers heading up there with Dr. Hewitt. It was nice to take some nature photos and get a change of pace from […]
Heidi took a well-deserved break one afternoon this week and we drove north-east with Elizabeth Faile to visit the escarpment near Nakpanduri. The escarpment is a long ridge that stretches west to east and on into Togo. Dr. Faile used to hike and camp here when he was a kid growing up in Nalerigu. Back […]
