Day 237 – 15953 feet at Cotopaxi

A day trip to Cotopaxi volcano the highest active volcano in the world. Involves a steep climb up to the Refugio hut from the car park. Didn’t look far but with the altitude at 4,800m, weather at it’s worst exposed to strong winds and horizontal icy sleet Nobbies were wondering what we were doing on the side of a volcano again. (Well in particular me!) Sadly couldn’t see the summit but was worth every huff and puff. Now bring on some warm rainforest weather to thaw out up north over the next few days
