Second Day Climbing

Dec. 16, 2014

This morning Shayna and I received our first satellite phone call!  Howard called to let us know they had reached Forest Camp and were getting settled.  As I write this they are waking up for their second day of the climb.  Today they will continue walking in the Rain Forest zone.  They will go through 5 separate temperate zones on the climb.  Tonight they will stay at the Shira 1 camp at 11,500 ft. elevation.  They have seen Colobus and Blue Monkeys.  Here is a visual of the Lemosho Route.
