Kilimanjaro: The Kilimanjaro Family Climb Begins Their Safari

Jambo from Lake Manyara!  We’ve just finished a great afternoon game drive.  The elephants were out in full force today.  We got extremely close to several of the amazon creatures.  Another highlight of the day was seeing several baboon and monkey babies.  All in all it was a great first day on safari.

Now you can all relax and really enjoy yourself! Must be beautiful actually seeing the animals in their natural habitat. Sam take lots of pictures of those giraffes.

Kilimanjaro: The Kilimanjaro Family Climb Returns From The Mountain

Hello from the Dik Dik.  This is Seth with a quick check in letting you know this we are all off the mountain safe and sound.  We had a nice walk down from our last camp this morning and we’re back at the hotel before 1pm.  After some well deserved showers we had a great celebratory dinner.  Now were all psyched up for our safari.  That’s starts tomorrow with a visit to Lake Manyara.  We’ll check in after our game drive.

Mt. Rainier: June 27th Update

The Four Day Summit Climb led by Andres Marin and the Viesturs/Whittaker Climb led by Ed Viesturs & Peter Whittaker were unable to summit Mt. Rainier today due to high winds and poor visibility.
The teams began their descent from Camp Muir around 7:30 a.m. 

The Expedition Skills Seminar - Emmons led by RMI Guide Billy Nugent will be returning to Rainier BaseCamp this afternoon. Weather and route conditions prevented the team from reaching the summit yesterday. Their team spent four days on the mountain expedition style climbing and learning new skills. 

We look forward to meeting the groups in Ashford later this morning.

Not sure if this is the team with our fearless leader CPK. We are all here back at home base, “ST Francis” in CT rooting you all on!! Be safe! So proud!

:)
