Photo Friday: Mt. Kilimanjaro

[singlepic=1864,588,,,left]This Photo Friday is from Marie Elena Martinez who shared another Photo Friday with us from French Polynesia.

Marie also shared with us her trepidation of traveling to Africa, despite being an experienced traveler. And that is where this photo is taken – 12,598 feet above the clouds at Shira Camp – Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania.

Day 2.  Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania.  Shira Camp.
The one part of climbing Kilimanjaro that wasn’t excruciating was the view.  Being above the clouds insured the most glorious sunrises and sunsets.  Taking breakfast against this background kept me going…even at 12,500 feet!

For a full accounting of Marie’s seven days on Africa’s tallest mountain last month, check out The Kili Diaries on her travel blog Marie’s World. And stay up to date on her adventures and writing on her Facebook Fan Page.
