One of the things we love most about Quito is its proximity to incredible scenery such as that found at Cotopaxi national Park. So we made our second trip to Cotopaxi, this time with the little peanut in tow. We were lucky to catch clear weather that permitted unobstructed views of Ecuador's second-highest volcano and the highest active volcano in the world. I may have taken a few too many photos of the peak, but it's not often that Cotopaxi comes out of hiding from the cloud cover. To view the entire album click here.
