Overlooking Baños, a new year hike.
Leaving Baños, on the edge of the Amazon.
Heading towards Volcan Cotopaxi, one of the worlds highest, active volcanoes.
Pretty ominous clouds in the distance, the weather forecast was heavy rain for the next few days.
With the clouds closing in to about 20m visibility, we only saw the Volcano on 2 occasions.
Completely unexpected tent view... we woke up to this, having spend the entire day before in the clouds.
We cycled round the backside of Volcan Cotopaxi, but the road deteriorated until it disappeared completely.
One of the many river crossings leaving us with soaking wet feet for the next few days.
Just us, in the middle of nowhere.
You'd be surprise just how much effort it takes to haul your bike through these little ditches at 4000m altitude.
A break in the clouds to appreicate the beauty of this place.
