Hello all,

I had promised I would send along pictures of our ascent of Mount Kilimanjaro last month. Ended up, my husband and 2 grown kids were all able to make it to the summit! The whole trip up and down takes 7 days. Maximum altitude: 19,341 feet.

It was an absolutely awesome week and I would recommend it to anyone who is outdoorsy, willing to train and can go a week without a shower. Also must be away from your puppies for way too long! Hoka and Moxie survived at a friend's house.

Pictured are my son, my husband, my daughter and our 2 excellent guides. 

View down from the top at sunrise:

After Kilimanjaro (Tanzenia), we took a few safari drives in Murchison Falls National Park, Uganda.  We were thrilled to see so many animals, including 7 lions (2 cubs), a family of elephants with baby, and countless giraffes. Were also were "lucky" to see a leopard on the hunt and making a kill.  Everyone else was thrilled, I closed my eyes and covered my ears against the mama antelope's wailing. No one else was a mom, so they did not understand.

If anyone happens to be interested in doing a trip like this, we absolutely loved our guides and crew. It is Tanzanian owned and operated, fun and professional.
