The Slopes of Kilimanjaro

Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania


This is the first of many pics to be uploaded from my recent trip to Africa. This picture was taken on the fourth day of an eight day climb to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro. The picture was taken at Barranco Camp (approx 13,000 ft). From here, you get a nice, long look at the Barranco Wall, a 950 foot cliff which we will climb the next morning (the path is just out of view on the right side of the frame). It looks worse than it is...there are only a couple of places where you have to use your hands to sramble up.
