Kilimanjaro Day 5 | Barranco Camp
Hello! Calling from camp two here at Barranco Camp on Mount Kilimanjaro. A big storm has rolled in after we had absolutely perfect weather yesterday. It turned out really nice this morning, but around noon, as we were having lunch, the storm rolled in. It was pouring in rain. Fortunately I live in Eugene, Oregon so I’m familiar with this weather and I came prepared. We hiked all the way through the jungle and into what they call Orland, it’s a high Alpine shrub. By about 3 o’clock camp was set up and we tried to dry out as best we could. We will eat dinner here in an hour. They are taking really good care of us and feeding us really well. We’re at about 13,000 feet and it feels really good. I acclimated really well. Tonight we will try to get a really good nights sleep and move to 13,500 feet tomorrow. Try to traverse the mountain to get to camp three. Spirits are really high even though its cold and raining. The fact that we got good porters helps us out. It certainly doesn’t hurt.
