Team “Rose Bowl”, Safely Back in Arusha!

Hello Everyone!

Team Rose Bowl has successfully and safely completed the climbing and trekking portion of the trip! We have just returned from a very nice celebratory dinner here in Arusha and are looking forward to sleeping in a bed for the first time in a week!

Our last day of hiking was about 4 hours of descending through the rain forest to the Mweka gate of the national park where we had a buffet lunch and ended the intense exercise portion of the trip! Tomorrow, everyone but Britton will be heading out on Safari, and Britton will be heading home.

Thanks to team “Rose Bowl”, for an unforgettable and fun trip to the “Roof of Africa”! Everyone did an amazing job of accomplishing their goals of getting to the summit and back safely! Thanks for the hard work!
