Mt. Kilimanjaro (mini travelog); July 2-10, 2010

We made it to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro! It was a fun and epic nine-day adventure -- certainly not a piece of cake to reach the summit, but with no significant problems along the way. Thanks to crafting a somewhat nonstandard itinerary, we were able to stand alone (with our guides) on the 19,340' Roof of Africa, and spend a high-altitude overnight among the glaciers in the otherworldly 18,800' crater. We'll post a longer travelog with more photos in a few days. For now, it's shower time.

Next: Five-day jeep safari to Lake Manyara, the Ngorongoro Crater, and the Serengeti Plain
