Hey all. I’m still in Rwanda. Not much going on for me right now, just pretty much relaxing.
I’ve told you I would post some Kili pics, and here they are. When I get home I will post all of the pics I’ve taken on my photo album (http://photos.ruin.net). Enjoy these in the meantime.
Kibo Peak (the tallest of Kilimanjaro’s three peaks) is still very distant.
A shot of Kili in the moonlight:
Things got a bit cloudier
But we journey onwards…
Another nice shot of the mountain:
And the sun has set:
I think this is where the moon landing was filmed
Into the mist:
We encountered some elephant bones on a mound
Another nice shot of Kibo:
We began walking in the clouds
This is the Lava Tower at the Day 4 camp
Another shot of Kilimanjaro during dusk:
This part of Kili is known as the Western Breach – a valley inside of a mountain.
We woke up to discover we were above the clouds!
Kibo is very close now
Also, a shot of Mawenzi, Kilimanjaro’s second highest peak
After over 5 hours of steep walking, we reached an area known as Stella Point at sunrise. Uhuru peak, the summit, is very close now.
And we made it. Extra credit if you can identify Yours Truly
The glaciers near the top are pretty spectacular as well
That is all I have for now. I hope you enjoy!
