Viewing Post for: Kilimanjaro Climb 2014

Date: Wednesday, January 22. 5:00 pm
Location: Shira 1, 11300 feet

We rock! Great hike. All is well. We have risen above the trees, bushes and are on the great Shira Plateau. Feeling the sense of the splendor and majesty the Kilimanjaro range. We could see into the vast plains below. Maggie's personal high is surpassed today. Others are awaiting their high. A few high tussock hops. As we write, and eat popcorn and tea, Kibo begins to shed her skirt, the men leap up to get a view up, toward the mountain goddess. Shockingly close and shockingly big. Okay, plain English, it is awesome here. We are learning and forgetting just as fast the names of the beautiful flowers we pass. Sitting in the dining tent listening to Harry recite all the prepositional phrases in the English language. Friendships and conversations are deepening as we learn more about each other and our bodily functions. Have to go because Charlie has a great verse about critics for us.
