Mount Kilimanjaro,19,340' high is by far the high point of an African experience. Our 5-6 day climb is a life long memory for those that will stretch themselves just a little.
|The hike up is non-technical nor hard but it is taxing. Be in good shape, bite back the aches and the world will unfold below you. Here we get the first glimpse of the summit from the saddle at 13,500'. Pictured is some of the sparse but exotic flora which is a treat. Above here the scenery turns into a moonscape.|
|500' glacier right on the equator||11/20/97, 6:21 AM Uhura Peak, Cabo's 50th. Birthday||Hearts and spirits soar like eagles, miles above the African plains. You can see back into yesterday and clear into tomorrow. The challenge met and you are forever different.|
