16 Canadians Summit Kilimanjaro

A group of 16 Canadians recently got off the mountain this last week, and a story was published about them in a Canadian newspaper. The interesting thing was that most of group was over 50. The group leader was in his seventies and had just recovered from a hernia. Some of the group had never slept in a tent, others had never not had a shower for more than a day, and most of them were in modest shape. But they made it! They endured, the climbed, the fought, and they hiked for a week to Africa’s highest point.

Read this great colorful story on climbing Kilimanjaro.
