Kilimanjaro, Tanzania

How are you sensing climate change?

I will never forget my first trip to Tanzania in 2000; I was thrilled to see Mt. Kilimanjaro come into view out the window of the plane–the drama of snow-covered Kibo peak shooting out of the clouds at eye level. I’ve been back many times since but hadn’t had a good view of the mountain again until this summer (2019). When I saw the peak, my heart sank. It looked totally bare.
