First weekend in Quito--

Took a trip with Gulliver Travel to Cotopaxi, one of the highest volcanos in the region... one of the best parts was getting there! We took a train from Quito to Cotopaxi and apparently, they don't like to ride inside the trains here so... up to the top we climbed! It was actually much less terrifying than it appears.

Once at Cotopaxi, we climbed up a bit of the way -- altitude is tiring! I'm impressed that people climb all the way to the top. Saw a glacier, sort of looked like a bunch of dirty snow, but also kind of cool...then got to ride mountain bikes down which was entertaining! Overall good first weekend trip.
