Walking on Clouds

This morning I hiked Volcan Cotacachi with Milton who has been our guide on other treks. At 4 am we made the two hour drive up to the trailhead and started out in the early morning light…in the clouds. In the clouds is where we remained almost the whole time. Thankfully I could see the plants which changed dramatically from velvety grasses to strange alien formations which seem more at home on a coral reef. After two and half hours of moving up through the mist and with the breathing getting progressively harder, we reached our destination at 15,550 feet. This was roughly 700 feet below the peak which we didn’t have the equipment or life insurance to attempt. After a few more photos and pieces of chocolate we made our way back down through the clouds.
