The Shira Plateau extends west from “Kibo” (the actual volcano) and is our team’s goal for their second day on the trail. Along the way the trees get smaller, then turn to the rocky shrubbry of the Plateau. Today the weather was good and Chris reports that the team did well. Now they are over 12,000 feet, with expansive views to the south and west (including Mt. Meru which is near Arusha). Tomorrow they head for Barranco camp at 13,000 feet.
