Ecuador 2019 – FANTASTIC WEATHER DURING SECOND ACLIMATION HIKE

Hello family and friends! The team woke up to awesome views of Antisana, the fourth highest mountain in Ecuador. They hiked to Parcacocha lake (13,350 ft) enjoying beautiful landscapes along the way. The round trip took them 5 hours. They are all adjusting to the altitude very well. They are back to the hot springs resort enjoying a well deserved rest and recovery time. Tomorrow they are moving to the base of Cayambe, their first big snow-capped volcano in Ecuador. Team members send their best to their loved ones. They wanted to share a few pictures from today’s hike. More soon!
