Mount Meru

A few weeks ago we climbed a base hike on Mount Meru, the 5,000 ft. volcano just West of Mount Kilimanjaro. Because it is RIDICULOUSLY expensive to climb mountains here (they make you hire a guide, pay expensive gate fees, etc.), we just hiked around the base of the mountain and used a local friend as our guide. It was still one of the most gorgeous hikes I've done. We walked through a ton of Maasai villages and saw a lifestyle I almost didn't think existed. It was amazing. Here are a few pics from the day:
