Congratulations to RMI Guide Mark Tucker and the Kilimanjaro Team for reaching the summit of Kilimanjaro on August 14th! The team had a good summit day with cold temperatures but everyone did very well.  This is Mark’s 25th summit of Kilimanjaro, a true milestone.

After reaching the summit the team will descend to Barafu Camp at 15,000’ where they will eat, change and pack their gear to continue down the mountain.

We expect to hear from them later today once they have reached Mweka Camp at 10,000’ for their final night on the mountain. 

Congratulations to Mark and the summit team!

Congratulations Team!  I loved your comments from the summit.  What a thrill for you all.  Meri you cannot see your house from there.  Can’t wait to hear from you and see some pictures.  So far only the initial group picture online.  Love you, Mom
