Viewing Post for: 2013 Kilimanjaro Cancer Climb

Date: February 7th, 6:30 pm.
Location: Miriakamba hut on Mt Meru - 8 miles hiked. 8,100 feet

Welcome! Please free to write comments and we will get them on the mountain. We are all doing great. Got to the trailhead and started hiking about noon until dark. Incredibly beautiful forest. We have a guard with a gun because we are hiking in an area where there might be elephants and buffalo. Dangerous. Saw some giraffe and baboons and monkeys hiking up through a misty, heavily mossed forest. Our flights over through Ethiopia went great.

Hope you enjoy our posts. We will try each day but they are a bit erratic based on what we are doing on the mountain.
