Ecuador Volcanoes: Nugent & Team Prepare for Cotopaxi Summit

Elevation: 16,000'

The time spent relaxing at Chilcabamba was wonderful but like all good things came to an end. Fortunately for us, there will be more excitement to come as our adventure continues. We are about to make our move up to the Jose Ribas Refugio on Cotopaxi (over 16,000’) where we hope to get a little nap in before launching for the summit very early tomorrow morning. The weather pattern has been promising and with a little luck we will all be taking hero pics and exchanging high fives on the summit! But we’re not counting our chickens before the eggs hatch, Cotopaxi is a big mountain and deserves respect. Wish us luck!

More on the alpine escapades of this intrepid group as our program continues… Stay with us!
