Nader reporting for team Lost Boys from Tambopaxi lodge (12,356 feet)

This is Nader reporting for Team Lost Boys. Today was a rest day for the team.

We woke up in the morning at the Hacienda los Mortinos where we were treated to a great breakfast and picturesque views of Cotopaxi and several other prominent Ecuadorian peaks.

At noon we boarded a bus and drove to the beautiful Tambopaxi Lodge in Cotopaxi National Park. We had lunch at Tambopaxi and relaxed in preparation for our Cotopaxi climb tomorrow night.
