Orizaba ThumbMount Kilimanjaro – August 2012
Kilimanjaro’s Uhuru Peak, at 5895m, is the highest point in Africa.  I did a six day unsupported hike of the Rongai route, passing the jagged, awe-inspiring slopes of Mawenzi, Kilimanjaro’s second highest volcanic summit.

Orizaba ThumbMount Meru – August 2012
I hiked Mount Meru, Tanzania’s second highest, over three days as acclimatization for Kilimanjaro. Interesting volcanic terrain and wildlife on the lower mountain made for a scenic hike.
