My version of the year 2011 in review: 23 September

On the third day of my fourth climb of Mt. Kilimanjaro we walked up to Lava Tower at 4,000m above sea level and it snowed considerably at this location.
Apparently, when it snows there is a higher level of oxygen in the atmosphere and the resultant effect is that most climbers, who at this altitude are increasingly deprived of oxygen, become rather excited by the snowfall and appear to be re-energized.

From Lava Tower the route takes a long descent towards Barranco camp. It is a route that is

populated with some of Mt. Kilimanjaro's exotic plant species, including the Lobellia.
