Kilimanjaro - The evidence!!

Carl has been back from his adventure in Africa for a while now and up until now I have not had the time to blog about it, so here goes!! He carried out the climb in August and we are all very proud of him. 

He has said it was one of the hardest things that he has ever done and that it is unlikely to be something that he will repeat !! He said it was an eye opening experience a country of many contrasts but the enduring memory he has is of the poverty in some parts and the fantastic scenery from the top of the mountain.

View from the top!!!

Here he is at the top with his Scout Scarf!!!

At the top with his climb companion Grant who was climbing for his local hospice. Not all of the money is in yet as people have pledged a donation on completion of the task.
