FTA Ecuador Volcanoes January 2011: Illinizas Norte Summits!

From stu in the usa office
Jan 10, 2011

We have just had an update from our team from the top of Illinzas Norte! All is well and they are headed back down. We'll have more from them shortly when they are back in El Chaupi and share the latest.

They will be no doubt arriving near sunset in time for a great supper at the Lloviznas Hostal and looking out at the evening views of Cotopaxi and Illinizas. I have included two shots form last year to tide you over until we get their latest shots!

Spot note...
Kerr Adams is carrying a SPOT GPS Messenger and has been sending updates from a variety of places along the way including summits! For those of you who may have missed it you can still enjoy the action ahead on Cotopaxi!
