President Rafael Correa climbs Cotapaxi

Cotapaxi is perhaps Ecuador's most famous peak, a stratovolcano that reaches 19,347 feet above sea level. And this week Rafa climbed it.

Having been over 20,000 feet on a climb just once and knowing what that means in terms of effort, he gets serious kudos from your humble scribe. All the official Rafa photos here.
