Remants of a deadly plane crash on Mt. Kilimanjaro

Though it's a clear day when this photo was taken, Mt. Kilimanjaro makes its own weather. Frequently cloaked in clouds, it can be a trap for an unlucky and unsuspecting pilot. Hikers are reminded of man's fallibility while approaching Kibo Hut, the last stop before the climb to Mt. Kilimanjaro's summit.
