Rwanda is one of the three countries in the world with mountain gorillas. On this day we would track the Susa Family, well-known for being the group studied by Dian Fossey from 1967 to 1985, deep into the hills of the Virunga Mountains. After nearly four hours of searching, the rangers spotted the group and we approached cautiously. It was pouring rain when we arrived and found most of the gorillas taking shelter underneath some trees. 

A mountain gorilla from the Susa family yawns under a tree, waiting for the passing rain to subside.
