As someone who has spent a good amount of their life in the place that they were born, Claire Quinn Prestwick often desired to see new places throughout the world. Traveling around the world is something that many, many people aspire to do but not everyone is capable or has the means to do so. Traveling internationally is almost like a privilege at this point because it is so expensive to purchase international flight tickets. Claire Quinn Prestwick made the decision early on that she really wanted to see the beautiful continent of Africa. Africa is home to many different terrains and landmarks making it a completely unique continent. While in Africa, Claire Quinn Prestwick visited the mountain range known as the East African mountain range. The East African mountain range is the home of one of the tallest mountains in the entire world, Mount Kilimanjaro. Sitting at roughly 20,000 feet above sea level, Mount Kilimanjaro is no small hill.
