Kyle and I came home a day early from Cotopaxi. The weather was a little bad and we wanted a day in Quito before we left for the jungle. We got there on Monday afternoon after a 2 hour ride in the back of a truck... over half 4WD. Kyle tried to sleep anyways of course. We did a great waterfall hike soon after we got there. It involved a lot of hiking up the actual river... note the rubber boots. There is no electricity at Secret Garden Cotopaxi so we had dinner by candlelight and sat around the fire for a few hours. Tuesday morning we went on a horseback ride up Riminoui. A peak around 5200 meters high. We stopped about midway up and enjoyed the view before heading back to Secret Garden. Cotopaxi was pretty elusive and the clouds only cleared for about 30 minutes the entire time we were there. We made a last minute decision to leave today and got back to Quito around 4. It was a quiet and relaxing trip. We leave for Sacha Lodge tomorrow evening.
Oh & it is me and Kyle's 7th anniversary today :).
