Description: 
Detail of soil - Kizerawe, about 4 ft. red on top and a white soil below, weathered into ridges. Here I took a sample of the red over layer at a dept of about 2 ft. and the white soil at a depth of almost six or seven feet. These samples quite typical of a large area, although the deeper soil is often not as gravelly as this. [Shantz travel journal, Mar. 30, 1920]
