I have been mountain climbing in Ecuador all week. Took on 19,374 foot Cotopaxi this morning. We made it to ~18,000 feet before the avalanche risk turned us back. Had hoped to take this pic on the summit, but Cotopaxi in the background will have to do. Had a strong team and we had already conquered the difficult part prior to being turned back. Better to live to try again than tempt the fates though.
