Mt. Kilimanjaro to me is a very special place and having successfully summitted the highest peak in Africa makes it even more special. I have written several articles about Kili and each time time I read them or anyone elses blogs, stories, pictures, etc. it evokes a sense of pride and brings back great and successful memories. The picture above is my favorite picture of Kili itself. It was taken early in the morning from freezing cold Karanga Camp about 24 hours from the summit along the Machame Route. Africa is my favorite continent and Kili may be my favorite place on the dark continent. For the rest of my life my friend Jake (pictured to the left below) and I can say that we summitted Mt. Kilimanjaro. To read my day to day accounting of our climb, click here. In addition to see our slide show on youtube click here. Finally, I booked my whole East Africa trip with my man Donovan at Bootsnall Adventure Travel. He also runs a great Kili site that I check everyday.
