Mt. Kilimanjaro: Waterfall & Team Enjoy Views of Mt. Meru

Hello from Shira!  We’re all in camp and we’re relaxing.  It was nice and sunny for most of the day which was a pleasant change from yesterday.

It was actually one of the nicer days I’ve had on this mountain.  Usually there is some point in the day that’s uncomfortable temperature-wise.  Today there was none of that.  It was nice and warm in the morning and then as we got higher the clouds came in and out and that kept us from getting too hot.

We had excellent views of Mt. Meru (15,180’) and even got a few glimpses of Kilimanjaro’s summit.

We all made it into camp in time for lunch and now we’re spending the afternoon chilling out in camp.
