Mountain gorilla in Volcanoes National Park - Kinigi Ruhengeri Rwanda

While on a camera safari in East Africa we visited Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda. After trekking several hours up a mountain to an elevation of over 9,000 feet, we came upon a troop of mountain gorillas. We got within 10 feet of them, and this one posed for us.
