Preparing to summitTamara
03/08/2006, Austria Camp, Mt. Kenya
Jamie's message today was from the high camp, Austria Camp. He reports that everyone is doing well and that the weather has been good. Tomorrow, they will be leaving for the summit before dawn. Nelion, one of Mt. Kenya's twin summits that require technical rock or ice climbing, is the route they are traveling. Jamie said that he most likely will not leave a message tomorrow so there will not be a posting tomorrow. We will all have to wait in suspense to hear about the summit day!
Climbing Mt. KenyaTamara
03/07/2006, Shipman's Camp, Mt. Kenya
It's Tamara back at the helm after a brief hiatus for a trip to Utah. Here in Colorado Springs, it feels like we've leaped into summer with 70+ degree temperatures. This should change tomorrow, however, as much needed rain/snow are forecasted.
Flights are out tomorrow just after midnight. During the day we will relax then dine at Carnivore's, a Nairobi restaurant made famous by the meat eaters. When you're finished you hold up or set down the white flag set as the center piece. (It may be PETA folks who made this place famous. "People Eating Tasty Animals".)
