Mt. Kilimanjaro: Team Moves to Shira Plateau

Mark Tucker checking in from the Shira Plateau Camp at 12,500’ on Kilimanjaro.  The high today was about 80 degrees and mostly clear skies.  There were some cloud layers below but it has mostly cleared out and there are beautiful views of the mountain most of the day.
This evening the crescent moon was illuminating the southern and northern ice fields.  It’s been a fabulous night and we had a great dinner.  The team is doing well and having so much fun.  Wishing you were all here.
We are in the area of one of the three principal volcanoes that make up Kilimanjaro. The Shira Plateau has a bunch of parasitic cones that we are all staring at and getting some great pictures of. 
We are looking forward to a big day tomorrow to hit a high point of over 15,500’ feet and then we’ll drop back down to the Barranco Camp which will be situated at about 15,000’.  So, we have our work cut out for us but it will be good.  We’ll be just fine and will check in tomorrow when possible.
