Today, we put our hardshells to the test while acclimating and hiking in the Ecuadorian cloud forest. Because of its vacinity to the Amazon Rainforest, this area sometimes gets a fair amount of precipitation. Team members enjoyed the hike and felt happy to perform well in spite of the weather. We reached Parcacocha lake (4,069m / 13,350ft), snapped a few pictures and hiked back to the trailhead. We are currently appreciating the comforts of the resort where we are staying. There is nothing quite like taking a dip in the hot springs after hiking for a few hours at altitude. We have one more night here and tomorrow we will move to the foot of the third highest mountain in the country: Cayambe.
Thanks for tuning in!
