Kilimanjaro: Team at High Camp!

Elevation: 15,000

We’re at high camp! 

We pulled into Barafu Camp (approx. 15,000’) today right at noon.  When we awoke this morning a weather system had moved in overnight.  We were sandwiched between a low layer if clouds an an upper layer of clouds.  As we began our hike the clouds enveloped us and it began to rain.  After an hour the rain turned to snow which is much better for us.  All in all it was a fun day of hiking. 

We are about to have lunch after that it will be relaxing time until dinner an a few hours after that we’ll begin our summit push!  Wish us luck.
