That was a great report. The photographs were wonderful.
Ecuador certainly is a beautiful place and I hope to return there soon.

This looks like an awesome trip!

When I went to Ecuador and the Galapagos a few years ago, I swear I crawled into the exact same tortoise shell at that place! Ecuador is pretty awesome.

Interesting to read that you got hassled by the park guards even with a guide. We never got a clear answer a few years ago on whether you needed a local guide, or needed to be an accredited one, to climb the high peaks (and also whether there were equipment requirements, camping restrictions, etc.). This soured me on Ecuadoran mountaineering, and is something to keep in mind if you're tempted to do it.

@seano The guides said that the rules seemed to be different every day and were dependent on who was working the entrance station. There was never more than a few minutes of delay and we always ended up getting in obviously.
