I visited a Seed Production and Multiplication project in Gusau, Zamfara State not too long ago. This is one of the largest seed production companies in Nigeria.

However, what struck me was the beauty of the beauty of the Gusau Hills.

This is a range of hills which I will refer to as small mountains. I was made to understand that some people live very high up in the mountains inside caves. They come down in day time to work, farm, and do all they need to earn a living and then they retire up on to the mountains from around 6pm in the evening.

This is the place they know and regard as home.

I found this quite interesting. I took some nice photographs. Enjoy the beautiful scenery.
