Elevation: 13,000'

Another great day here on Killimanjaro. We had about 12 hours in the tents last night. The team used them well, for a strong group of climbers met the challenge to our new camp at 13,000 ft Baranco camp. We did have to climb up to a high point at 14,700’, an altitude record for a lot of the group, to get here.  No rain today which was very nice and everybody is resting and enjoying peanuts and popcorn in the dining tent.

The groups performance is all I could hope for. If we keep this up, with a little luck, we will soon be standing on the roof of Africa.
