Picture of the week 49
This is Barafu Camp. As you can see by all the tents, it has enough population for its own zip code. Most of the night summit attempts leave from here.
Shira, Lemosho, Machame and Umbre Routes all pass through Barafu to the summit.
We briefly stopped in Barafu for a candy bar and continued on to Millennium Camp for our last night.
The trek from the summit (19,340 ft) to Millennium Camp (12,300 ft) took 7 hours.
The oxygen rich air returned our cognitive spark that had been squeezed out high on the mountain. We could breath, eat and sleep…pure heaven!
