Uhuru Means Freedom.
The world's tallest free-standing mountain, the highest point in Africa, Uhuru peak, Mt. Kilimanjaro, in Tanzania:
Also, I can report that, although the rainy season has yet to begin, and although it's still summertime, there is plenty of ice and snow up there. PLENTY. More than ever, according to some of the locals. More than anytime in the past 20 years, according to others. Very much more than any of the pictures on the internet. There is so much ice and snow up there, in fact, that it made the trek around the crater rim from Gilman's Point to Uhuru Peak quite a bit more dangerous and time-consuming than it's been in recent years. And the actual glaciers (some as tall as skyscrapers), rather than disappearing by 2010, 2015, or 2020, will still be there for my children, their children, their children, and so on. I would bet a lot of money on that.
I'll try to post some more pictures and stories later, as well as some advice for those thinking about attempting the climb.

Have they built that bridge between the twin peaks of Kilimanjaro yet?
Sorry, Monty Python reference.
Dopey me, I though Kilimanjaro was in Kenya.

Kenya is a few miles to the North. And we could see for *possibly* hundreds of miles into Kenya's vast plain on our way up the mountain.

Now that Texas has captured that vital east African strategic salient that is Kilimanjaro, I hope you guys aren't going to just cut and run.

It looks so cold up there! I bet Heidi could have made it to the top.

Nothing like boots on the mountain for some ground truth.
