Mt. Rainier: July 15th Teams Summit

RMI Guide Peter Whittaker and the Four Day Summit Climb team reached the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning around 5:20 am. The team is making their descent back to Camp Muir and enjoying a light wind. We look forward to seeing them in Ashford this afternoon. The Expedition Skills Seminar – Emmons led by RMI Guide Pete Van Deventer reached the summit of Mt. Rainier around 7:00 am. Pete reports clear skies on the summit and 15 mph winds. He says it is fairly warm and a really nice day to climb. The team is enjoying some time at Columbia Crest and will begin their descent to Camp Schurman around 8:00 am. Congratulations to today's climbers!

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. RMI Guides Peter Whittaker and Seth Waterfall

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. - RMI Guide Seth Waterfall
