Elevation: 19,348'


It’s Billy giving you a call from the summit of Cotopaxi.  We are on top in beautiful weather, sunny skies and calm winds and a very happy crew.  Not much else to report.  We are gearing up, getting some sunscreen on, getting some food and water and preparing for our descent back to the hut.  We will give you a call when we are back to the hut safe and sound. 

Until then… chao,
