Viewing Post for: Kilimanjaro Climb 2014

Date: Monday, January 27
Location: The summit of the highest point in Africa,Kilimanjaro, 19,340 feet

Yes, at 6:30 am,after 7.5 hours of very slow hiking we all reached the summit. Beautiful night! Stars, shooting stars, incredible sunrise lighting the glaciers. All did well which is not the same as easy. Different people had different challenges. For some the slow pace was a challenge, some mild stomach issues, some the cold, some dizziness, not easy. Maggie's voice in the audio may convey more then we can here. Now after our 10 hour round trip we rest an hour then descend 5 more hours for a 10,000 foot ,total descent today.
