Cotopaxi Express: Nugent & Team Check in from the Chilcabamba Eco Lodge

Hey there!  This is Billy calling in with our dispatch for July 3rd.  The team woke up pretty early here in Quito.  We got out of the hotel pretty quickly after a nice breakfast.  We headed south of town to the Illinizas which is a really cool park to do another training hike.  We ended up hiking for a few hours, climbing up above 15,000’.  We made it to a Refugio which sits right in the saddle between Illiniza Norte and Illiniza Sur.  We had some hot drinks then cruised on down.  The team performed super well and so we were really psyched.  After that we descended where Victor, our driver, rendezvoused with us again at the trailhead and we headed up to the Chilcabamba Eco Lodge where we had a fantastic meal and an awesome night!  We are really enjoying the super, super bright full moon and amazing views of Cotopaxi which is our next big adjective.  Tomorrow we are planning on heading that way, towards Cotopaxi, so we will give you a call and let you know how things are developing.  That’s all for now, bye.
