Cuenca - Canyoning and Climbing

This weekend, some friends and I took a trip to Cuenca to do some canyoning and rock climbing. Unfortunately, there are few pictures of the canyoning because my camera was in a dry bag on my back most of the day. On the drive home, we had great and very rare views of several of the volcanos in Ecuador: Chimborazo, Ilinizas, and Cotopaxo. Given their height, and Ecuador´s relatively small square acerage, these volcanos are viewable on very clear days from nearly any corner of the country, including cities on the coast, hours away.

Este fin de semana, yo fui con unos amigos a Cuenca para hacer canyoning and para escalar. Lastimosamente, son pocas las fotos del canyoning porque la camera estaba en una bolsa seca por la mayoria del dia. Regresando a Quito, tuvimos unos paisajes muy buenos y muy raros de unos de los volcanes del Ecuador: Chimborazo, Ilinizas, y Cotopaxi. Por sus alturas, y el relativamente pequeno tamano de Ecuador, se puede ver los volcanes en un dia muy claro de casi todo el pais, incluyendo las ciudades en la costa que quedan lejos.

gotta eat right.
