Erik Schumaker and Kevin McWilliams (a Prairie High School grad) of Billings, Mont., Michael McWilliams of Helena, Mont. and Pat McWilliams of Ferdinand all had the opportunity of a lifetime. They were able to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro and take a 4-day safari through Lake Manyara, Serengetti and Ngorongoro Crater. They spent 7 days on Kilimanjaro round trip so they could acclimate properly. The elevation at the summit is 19,340 feet and you can feel the difference in the air near the summit. There were no major problems and everyone returned safely.They are at the summit in the top photo while the lower photo shows the cloud shrouded Kilimanjaro.
