    7 Days on the Ground - Mt. Kilimanjaro

    So this is more of a tease than a full trip report. There's so much to write I'm having trouble getting started! I spent 2 weeks in Tanzania, Africa on safari and climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro. Not a tree in sight, and those that are had lions in them! I think Shug would even go to the ground for that. I have about 900 more photos, but they require sorting and such.

    Training before the climb.


    Angry clouds!




    Glaciers are cool!








    I like this picture because it looks so completely fake.
