Armchair Travel Adventures
Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro – presented by Ken Bloomfield. Mt. Kilimanjaro, the highest point in Africa, rises 19.341 feet above the continent. Climbing Mt. Kili, while not a technical climb, requires stamina and determination, plus warm clothes and lots of medication for the five day hike to the summit. Altitude sickness can strike even the youngest and fittest of climbers, but the reward at the top is worth it. Everyone is welcome.
