Mt. Kilimanjaro: Justman and Team Camp on the Shira Plateau

Today the trail became steeper on Kilimanjaro and rockier as we left the Giant Heather Zone. The team did a great job as the terrain got rockier. We even climbed some large rock bands testing our solid footwork on the slippery rocks.

We now are in the Moorland consisting of unique grasses and beautiful wild flowers unique to East Africa including Lobelias and Senecios.

After climbing a wide ridge we gained the broad and sloping Shira Plateau. It was a terrific day and we would love to include photos but the heavy mist kept the distant views out of sight. However, now at Shira Camp (12,200’) we are hoping it clears offering our first view of the upper stretches of Kilimanjaro.

Rob, JJ and team…keep up the great work that you are doing.  Weather sounds fantastic.  One of my most memorable moments was late one night looking up at the stars…just amazing.  Enjoy your time together on such a wonderful mountain…remember every minute.
