Day 5 on the mountain saw us hike across the moonscape, that is the saddle between Mawenzi and Kibo Hut. It was about five miles and took us four hours. We reached this high camp at 15,400 feet at 1 p.m. The rest of this day is devoted to rest and waiting to head out toward the summit at midnight.
Mike passed his personal high (Mount Rainier) on our move up to Kibo Hut. The walk continued a good discussion on Islam and Christianity.
“He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.”
