Private Ecuador High Altitude Expedition - Cayambe - Cotopaxi
"Hello again from Hacienda Guachala! Well after the last time I called in the middle of the night, it snowed a lot. After deciding there was no way we could climb today, we went back to bed, and when we got up in the morning, we had 50cm of fresh snow on the ground! It is not what we were expecting.
Anyway we're having a great time despite the weather. After we got here we had a nice lunch and then Jen and William took a nap. Now it's evening and we'll have dinner together in a few minutes. We are committed to eating very well so we are ready for Cotopaxi and nature's challenging elements. We must fortify ourselves!
Tomorrow we will head to the lodge called Chilcabamba in Cotopaxi National Park. I made some calls this afternoon, and the weather has been a lot better down there, further south from us. Hopefully the weather pattern stays the same there for the next couple of days.
