Pinchincha

After arriving back in Quito from my week and a half in Chone, myself along with about 12 others from my July program headed up the teleferico (or gondola) to the volcano Pinchincha. This is the volcano to the West of Quito that overlooks the city. Where you get dropped off at the top the elevation is around 13,500 ft. From there, there is a walking path to the top of the volcano, but we did not attempt to climb to the top mainly because of the high altitude. Near the teleferico exit, we were able to take pictures with llamas and were given the sweet clothing to wear for the pictures.
