Kilimanjaro Team at Shira Camp

The team woke to the sounds of monkeys in the trees above them this morning to start Day 2 of their Kilimanjaro trek. They had some breakfast, packed their daypacks with snacks and water, and started up the mountain towards the Shira Camp at 11,500 feet. They left the rain forest today and are trekking up into the alpine heath zone where they also got their first close up views of Kilimanjaro!

Everyone is doing well and they are excited to be moving on up the mountain. Aleksei called in the expedition dispatch from the Shira Camp this evening. Click on the link below to listen to Aleksei.
