Kili Day 6! (Almost to the end!) This was summit night and it was nuts! After dinner and a nap we got up around midnight and hiked about 6 hours up from our basecamp to Uhuru Peak. I started out feeling strong but a few hours in was pretty maxed out. Still we kept trudging up, up, up and eventually made it to Stella Point just as the sun was rising. Then it was a pretty smooth mellow walk out to Uhuru Peak. The dawn lights on the surrounding glaciers were unbelievably beautiful, but due to my being 1) super cold, 2) exhausted, and 3) having a small meltdown I didn't take any photos. Still the image of the pink, purple, and orange light on the giant ice mountains were amazing 😍
Anyway, we summited around 630am and then had a ridiculous slip slidey snow hike back to basecamp where we napped and then had a nice hike down to Millenium Camp.
Also this is my Summit Night guide @nelson_goodluck_melleor who literally carried my and another's pack, sang and danced up the mountain, and then picked me up like it was nothing at 19000+ ft. AMAZING.
