Well, our time has come to an end. The 2012 season is in the books. The crew will be strapping on their packs and heading off the mountain in a few hours. It has been a crazy year. Record temperatures and record snows. I am happy to be heading to the land of comfy couches and a big ole' fireplace. Oh yeah, and indoor plumbing. I will keep you all up to date on our summit of Kilimanjaro. Be on the look out for a few hijacked posts of images from the big mountain. I am going to pass this on to JP and let him say hello. I know he is looking forward to keeping you all up to date on his daily wanderings around the mountain top. See you in 2013.
Greetings, folks! My name is JP and I am thrilled to have returned for my 2nd season watching this glorious mountain. I'll be keeping y'all posted on the mountains' daily conditions, as well as my ramblings through the park. Yesterday's high temperature was 43 degrees and the overnight low was 31 degrees. Skies were partly cloudy at observation and it looks as though the mountain will have clear skies today and tomorrow. Happy hiking!
