After our day in Quito, we started acclimating in earnest. First we climbed a small "hill" near Quito, Guagua Pichincha (Baby Pichincha) taking us to about 4800 meters (~15,750 feet) before returning back to Hacienda Rumiloma. The next day was a little more relaxing, with a bit of time in the Otovalo market before a shorter hike around a lake at the base of a mountain in the Reserva Ecologica Cotacachi-Cayapas and a night in Hacienda Pinsaqui.

This post has been a long time coming. It's taken a while to keep living life while also finding the time to share--I hope you enjoy these photos!

This trip started with a few meetings: first Fernando, the one who would drive me from the airport to the Hacienda Rumiloma where I will spend several nights. Then Alex, who will be joining me in all the mountaineering parts of this trip. Also Alejo, our mountaineering guide (there will be a lot of Alex's this trip--deal), and many other nice people (too many to list them all without boring you to death).
