“We are glad to tell you that the weather has turned perfect here. We are at the Cotopaxi hut. It’s 5:40 in the evening; we are going to eat at 6 o'clock, go to bed at 7, get up at 11, and begin our climb at midnight.
The weather is PERFECT! It is sunny outside, and as the sun gets lower in the sky, it is very colorful here in Cotopaxi National Park. Very beautiful. And it is PERFECTLY clear!!! Now we have a chance to try our best on this great mountain. We can see the summit, and the mountain looks beautiful.”
