My son Ethan and one of our guides, Rachael, in the mists on Kilimanjaro. This was during our 3rd day on the mountain. This was a long day to acclimatize. We hike for about 9 miles and took about 7 hours. We started at approx. 13,500 ft., ascended to Lava Tower, greater than 15,000 ft., then down to our 3rd camp at Barranco at about 13,700 ft.

Alas, I have no photos of Lava Tower. As you can see, the weather didn't cooperate. It rained on us for the greater portion of 3 days. Luckily it was clear with little wind on summit night/day.

Bonjour David,
La monté ne semble pas facile mais l'ambiance nuageuse de la montagne est superbement représentée.


Welcome David,
excellent hazy landscape. Dangerous scenery for hiking. Good climatic shot.
