Weekly Photo Challenge: Spring! (Galapagos islands)

My first time… Hiking up a Volcano!

I signed up for a day hike with G adventures up Cotopaxi, a dormant stratovolcano that’s about 28 km South of Quito in Ecuador. Standing at 5897 m, it’s the second highest summit in Ecuador, visible from the capital.
