Top of Africa!

We summited Kilimanjaro on Day 6. Started walking from our camp at 15,500 feet at 11pm, reached Gilmans Point at 615am just ahead of sunrise, and reached Uhuru Peak at 805am. Everybody in our group of 8 made it; it was a struggle for two people in our group but they persevered. Jill and I both felt great, no altitude issues. The views were spectacular. Uhuru Peak, the highest point on Kilimanjaro, is at elevation 5895m.

Here is the money shot, 805am, 23 September 2011..
