Ecuador Volcanoes: Beren & Team Hike to Top of Rucu Pichincha

What a day!  After breakfast the rain let up for a bit and we boarded the teleferico for a ride up to 13,200 feet. Nice way to travel. We caught a quick glance at Cotopaxi before the clouds rolled in and enjoyed perfect walking temperatures up to the ridge of the extinct volcano Rucu Pichincha. With a weather window to work with, we roped up and climbed to the summit, everyone standing tall at 15,700 feet above the sea. The team did great and we even managed to get down to the trail before the rain came in. The rain stayed with us until we got back to town, but everyone’s spirits remained high and now we are relaxing before dinner. Tomorrow we leave Quito and head for even higher ground.  Wish us luck!
