    Excited to share that I reached the summit! 19,341 ft. in just 7 days. Honestly, the toughest yet most fulfilling journey I've ever embarked on. Holy cow, was that intense!

    Once I'm back from Tanzania, I'll be sharing some epic photos and videos. A huge thank you to everyone for your unwavering support and generous contributions to Charity: Water. Your kindness means the world!

    Fun Facts!

    Kili is the highest point in Africa with an elevation of 19,341 feet (5,895 meters)

    It's the world's highest free-standing mountain, meaning it is not part of a mountain range, which is why the dramatic rise from the surrounding plains is so pronounced!

    It has 5 unique climate zones:
    - Rainforest (2,800 - 9,200 ft): Lush and humid--offers a chance to see monkeys, colorful birds, and vibrant flora.
    - Moorland (9,200 - 13,100 ft): More open with shrubs, heathers, and mosses. Temperatures can drop significantly at night!
    - High Desert (13,100 - 16,400 ft): Sparse vegetation and more extreme temperature fluctuations.
    - Alpine Desert (16,400 - 19,300 ft): A barren landscape with rocks, ice, and some hardy flora. Air gets significantly thinner.
    - Arctic (19,300 ft and above): At the summit, temperatures can be below freezing (-20*F). Characterized by ice fields, glaciers, and the stunning Uhuru Peak.

    + At the summit, the oxygen level is about 50% of what it is at sea level. This makes breathing more laborious
