Out here, in West Pokot County, Kenya, the landscape looks like Mars — red clay, rocks, and in the distance, a mountain so bare it looks like a giant boulder.
Stephen Long'uriareng, 80, has walked two hours to bring her two cows and goats to this watering hole. It's really just a dam carved out the earth, where the rain water mixes with mud and turns into a dark brown color.
This is not the place Long'uriareng remembers from her youth.
"This whole place used to be green with a lot of pasture. There was nothing being experienced like drought," she said.
