Kilimanjaro: Tucker & Team Ascend to Shira Plateau

Jambo!

We had a great first day and night on Kilimanjaro.  We awoke this morning to perfect climbing conditions.  After our team breakfast we packed our bags and set out for our next camp on the Shira Plateau. 
We ascended to 12,000’ traveling through the “Giant Heather” zone to our camp over looking the majestic Great Rift Valley.  Before reaching camp the afternoon rains began so we grabbed our rain gear and continued on.  With our dining tent and all our sleeping tents set up by our great mountain staff when the team reached camp, we have remained dry throughout the afternoon and evening.  We will have a nice team dinner before retiring to our tents for the evening.

The weather already looks like it is starting to clear so we’ll hope for clear skies by morning when we set out on the trial again.

We will check in again soon!
