Ecuador’s Volcanoes: The Team Acclimatizes on Rucu Pichincha

Hola from Quito!

We started the day with another wonderful breakfast here at the hotel full of fruits, eggs, fresh baked breads and plenty of coffee. We then took a short cab ride to the Teleferico and rode the gondola up to around 13,500’. From here we hiked for about 3 hours to the top of Rucu Pichincha (15,696’). It was mostly cloudy on our acclimatization hike until we nearly reached the summit. The clouds broke up a bit and allowed us a few views of the surrounding valley. The team did great on the hike and a few team members reached new altitude records. We spent the rest of the day doing a little shopping, sightseeing and a few of us took siestas.

All is well here in Ecuador and we are looking forward to tomorrow’s adventure.
