We Enjoyed Our First Excursion in Ecuador

Today, we drove back into the Andes mountains, this time to visit one of the many volcanos that are Ecuador. It was great to see the beautiful scenery and get out of the city and into the countryside. We did a difficult hike inside of a caldera that is filled with water and then took a quick hike around the rim as well. All-in-all, it was a wonderful day, but quite exhausting. We still have many more adventures left and look forward to providing details on days like today. There are only a couple of days until we return to the Amazon jungle for four days, during which we might be completely out of touch, so forgive us if we don’t post for a few days. Enjoy a few photos from our day.

Going Down was Easier than Climbing Back Up
