Pichincha Volcano Nov 16, 2008
Pretty cool Volcano right outside the city of Quito, Ecuador. The Volcano sit with in a group of Mountain Ranges that surround the city. Pinchincha in very easily accessible. It was about a 15 min taxi ride from the Marriott(Downtown Quito). We took the Cable Cars up to about 4100 meters and hike up to about 4500 meters. The whole landscape up there is like something out a national geographic. It was magical, especially if you don't get up in the mountains much. Beware of the altitude. If keep your energy output lower than you energy input, You should be fine.
