Kilimanjaro: Grom & Team Traverse to Barranco Valley

Hello again We had another nice day here in Africa with a few views of Kilimanjaro this morning, before the clouds closed in and thankfully protected us from the intense sun. We left Shira camp and slowly climbed uphill before we started our traverse over to Barranco Valley across the volcanic plateau and just below the remaining glaciers that cling to Kilimanjaro's slopes, which sadly we didn't get to see up close, but there's always tomorrow! As we approached camp we were all amazed to the giant Groundsels and famous Senecio trees that look like something out of a Dr. Suess book and were relieved to be at camp after about 5hrs of hiking. Everyone is doing very well and are looking forward to tomorrow's climb up the Barranco wall which sits just above camp. RMI Guide Casey Grom

Happy 70th Birthday, Judge!  It’s so appropriate that you’re climbing and doing what you love today!  No worries about the office, it’s been SOLID LABOR, since you left! : )  Jayne, the pics look like you’re having fun, too!  Prayers for y’all and the entire crew for a safe summit and return.
