Mount Kilimanjaro Terrain

ter·rain

/təˈrān/

noun


· a stretch of land, especially with regard to its physical features.



On August 10, 2021 @ 8:15 am and at 19,341 feet, my world was forever changed and a brotherhood was forged with teamwork, trust, sweat, blood, tears, perseverance, faith, courage and so much more. We started with a team of 12 and ended up with 9 of us summiting.


Before I post our Sheepdog Kilimanjaro climbing story, I wanted to show the amazing and rough terrain we hiked through on the Lemosho Route to reach our goal of summiting.


I started this journey on my knees grabbing the earth in my hands and asking God to walk with me on this journey grabbing my hand when I needed it. I also did the same thanking him on the top, and a final time when I stepped off. He was there the whole time, I truly felt him.
