Cotopaxi Volcano Refuge Climb - August 2008
August 2008 There were nine of us in two vehicles that set out on the camping and climbing get away. We spent all day Saturday in the Cotopaxi National Park. We visited the museum and then climbed up to the refuge, located at around 16,000 ft. What a climb! This was my third time to climb to the refuge. We had hot chocolate there before getting the obligatory pictures and heading back down to the trucks. We then spent the rest of the day exploring and finding a campsite. While at Cotopaxi we completed the requirements for two virtual caches, one which is an earthcache. Check them out on www.geocaching.com.
