Day 3 was short and sweet as far as trekking. We ascended only about 600 vertical feet in our four-mile hike from Second Cave to Kikelelwa at 12,100 feet. The walk took less than three hours and we beat a torrential rain storm that soaked our camp and left us in the clouds and a fog for the afternoon.
Another Christian climber, Nathaniel, who hails from Wyoming but currently is working in Russia, has joined our fellowship. He is trekking Kilimanjaro solo and was happy to spend time with us, and us with him.
