    ALAMO, Calif. (AP) - A 33-year-old San Francisco Bay Area man was killed while climbing Mount Kilimanjaro last weekend.

    The Oakland Tribune reported Tuesday that Scott Dinsmore, who was hiking with his wife, died after a cascade of boulders rolled down the mountain and one of them hit him.

    His wife was not injured.

    Dinsmore's father, William Dinsmore, said he died doing what he loved.

    The climb of Mount Kilimanjaro was part of a yearlong trip Dinsmore was taking with his wife, Chelsea Dinsmore, to travel the world.

    The couple sold all their belongings in January and left their home in San Francisco.

    They visited 20 countries before they ascended the mountain in Tanzania.

    Chelsea Dinsmore, who returned to the Bay Area Monday, said they are arranging to bring her husband's body home. A memorial service is pending.
