Kilimanjaro Pictures

This is the view of Kilimanjaro from about day two of the hike. We are already well out of the thick undergrowth and above the cloud line. I hiked for a day and a half on a mountain that I had never seen because of the thick cloud cover. Uhuru Peak is behind the glaciers on top.

This is from the middle of the second day. We had just (well, maybe a while ago) crossed the cloud line.

This is the top bit of the peak climb to Gillman's Point. The 4 kilometer (2.5 mile) hike takes about six painful hours of weaving back and forth on the swithchbacks.

This is me looking like I just got finished with a death march, but standing at the highest point in Africa.

This is the top of the mountatin. Rocks, glaciers and clouds. And not much else.

These are the lodging on the hike. Nothing short of luxurious.
