Day 10 – Summit Day

Summiting Mount Kilimanjaro (19,340 ft) September 24, 2007

We left camp and started for the summit Monday morning at 1:00 am (4:00 pm MST on Sunday). We summited at 9:45 am (12:45 am MST). The summit is Uruhu Peak, 19,340 feet — the tallest peak in Africa and the tallest free-standing mountain rise in the world. On the way down, we saw a family of colobus monkeys. They looked like skunks in a tree.

Day 3 – Gear is Here!

I don’t have much time, but a couple of things: (1) The animals come so close that binoculars are unnecessary. (2) It doesn’t look like the phone is going to work, so I won’t be in touch again until after the climb.  But my gear is here!!!!!! I have to run to go get it.

By the way — today I saw giraffes, water buffalo, impala, baboons, monkeys, zebras, etc.
