The Cruel Cotopaxi Climb

... rests, and I was beginning to worry that I had suffered serious dehydration or worse. Consuming gatorade and water, and trying to shield my eyes from the glare off the snow to avoid snow-blindness (my sunglasses had frozen over) we made our slow and painful descent, eventually reaching the bottom of the glacier. After we had unshackled our crampons and harnesses we continued, although Will strangely rushed ahead - we're still not sure what his hurry was, he was ...

Before going for dinner I made my mind to book a single flight to the Galapogas (wahay!). That night we ...
