Day 2:

This day I recon would have had to be my least favourite not because it was hard or anything I just felt like it took forever and just didn't seem to end. This day was a 6hr hike over 15km from Mandara Huts to Horombo Huts (3720m) total gain 1020m. Walking though the moorland part of mountain there wasn’t all that much to see in terms of plants. However it did give us our fist views of the bottom of the mountain, looking down 3700m sure is something when you can sit there and watch the rain clouds sweeping over the flat plains of Africa. And there were these weird tree like things called Dendrosenecio which only grow in small stream that flow down the mountain and at altitudes over 3000m. But once we had first site of Horombo Huts boy were we glad to see them and have a well deserved rest and hot chocolate because things where starting to get a tad cooler, but did get a very awesome sunset.
