Elevation: 16,000'

Greetings from 16,000’ on Cotopaxi!  This is the Ecuador Cotopaxi Express climb calling to check in.  We are up at the hut relaxing, drinking some tea, and acclimatizing. We’re getting ready to do a little bit of training tomorrow but for right now we are just bumping ourselves up a little higher into the atmosphere and we’ll hang out and acclimatize for a bit before doing some training tomorrow and get ready for our attempt at the top the day after. So all is well up here; it’s snowing lightly but we anticipate it clearing out just in time for us.
