Crying Rock - Fine Art
On the outskirts of Kakamega is the rock formation known as "The Crying Rock". Its unique feature is that water runs nearly year round from under the big stone on top of the monoliths. There are no springs or higher hills with streams or underground water sources or anything obvious to explain this phenomenon. One legend claims that the stone was once a man whose wife ran away with another man. In his grief, he turned to stone and weeps for his loss. In the foreground is a man with a child on his shoulders. That was Eric enjoying the children after hiking up to the base of the rock.
