Ecuador High Altitude Expedition: Dispatch 7

Ecuador High Altitude Expedition: November 26–Dec 10, 2010

Lead Guide: Pepe Landazuri

Climbers: Diane Evans, Robert Krueger, Timothy Pattee, John Stephenson, Scott Curtis.

Pepe called Friday, December 3rd at 8:46 pm Ecuador (and US Eastern) time:

The message was somewhat fuzzy although we gathered that they are heading for Cotopaxi and preparing for the big climb. Today they went to a hot springs near Guachala, had lunch there, and then drove about three hours from the hot springs to Tambopaxi Lodge in Cotopaxi National Park. Everyone is excited to start the climb of Cotopaxi, and the group is poised and ready.

Note:  Our apologies to family and friends for the delay in posting the dispatches over the weekend.  The person who was scheduled to post them became quite ill and other people who could have done it were out of town.  We are sorry for the delay.
