Greetings everyone from Chilcabamba Eco Lodge! We’re enjoying a great rest day after our big day yesterday on Cayambe. From our spot we have an amazing panorama of beautiful green farmland surrounded by tall mountains on all sides. Most notably, a full frontal view of Cotopaxi’s impressive north face! Last night we could even see the lights of the refugio on the flank of the volcano. That’s going to be home in a couple of nights, and where we’ll make our summit attempt from. Anyhow, the team has been spending the day drying out and organizing gear for tomorrow’s hike to the refugio. We’ll check in tomorrow from the refugio! Billy and the crew!

Shout outs: Greetings, Nick and Cam from dad! Study hard! See you soon after exams. Julie, I love you! James says, “hello to friends and family back home!” Mena, one down one to go! Outta touch with civilization - be home soon! Casey and Sarah say, “we’re having a great time, lots of stories, we’ll be home soon!” Dawn: “Eating, feeling, and doing great!”

Thanks to Dawn Kim for the photos in this post!
