Day 2 - Shira Camp

The second day on the trek was a relatively relaxed walk - about 7 km to a camp called Shira. This leg of our hike took us out of the tree line and into what they call the moorland.
Day3 - Unknown Plant
The groups had spread out a little and it didn't seem as crowded as on the first day. After we reached the Shira camp, since we had a lot of energy left, we decided to trek up another little hill. We were rewarded with some fantastics vistas of the mountain. First the moon rose just over the peak and then the setting sun splashed some fancy colours on the mountain.
Day2 - SunsetAtShira
This camp situated at 3850m amsl claimed the first victim; Josy fell rather ill and decided that she couldn't go on any further. Sad to see her go.

You have depressed me beyond belief! Here I am wondering which movie to watch on my hard drive!! Dreading your photos of the Alpine Desert. Really awesome stuff. Are you going to Masai after this? Of course you are.

@N: You bet I went to the Maasai land after this. A post dedicated to Serengeti coming up soon :)
