I have had 2 things on the top of my bucket list since I was 5 years old, and they were to go to Africa to see wildlife and the number one thing was to see Mountain Gorillas in the wild. This past summer, I had fulfilled my life long dream! We were in Uganda, and had the opportunity to hike into the forests of Bwindi in search for Mountain Gorillas. We hiked for a few hours tracking them, when we found them. We were only allowed to be with them for an hour. It was the best hour of my life. I was in complete awe, and wanted to stay there for the rest of time. No wonder Diane Fossey and Jane Goodall were able to spend their time observing apes/primates. It was a day that changed my life forever. Each time I look at my photos from that day, I hardly believe I was there and those images were taken by me. It makes me want to do more to help conserve these amazing animals.
