Today we travelled 2.5km by cable car up the side of the volcano Pichincha to a height of 4100m.
Looking down over Quito.
Unfortunately from the view point at the top it was too cloudy to see the numerous mountains and volcanoes that surround Quito. Occasionally the clouds parted briefly to reveal a glimpse of the magnificent Andes mountain range.
If it is a clear day when we return to Quito from the Galapagos this is one place I would like to revisit.
