17th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Sunrise Over Mt. Meru Two Hours From the Summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro
Hiking up Mt. Kilimanjaro on Summit Night was challenging, beginning around 1 AM. The sun came up around 5:45 AM, encouraging us that we only had a couple of hours to get to the top. The mountain is Mt. Meru over which the clounds are streaming, so this is a photo of one mountain summit (Meru) taken from near the summit of another mountain (Kilimanjaro).
