Cotopaxi by cclaude
Clear

FEATURED in AMERICAS, RURAL, URBAN, WILD AND FREE, in INTERNATIONAL SHOWCASE and in 60 AND BEYOND

Located in Ecuador and reaching a height of 5,897 m (19,347 ft), Cotopaxi is one of the highest active volcanoes in the world and the second highest summit in the country. Its name means “Smooth Neck of the Moon”, and was honored as a “Sacred Mountain” by local Andean peoples, even prior to the beginning of Inca domination in the 15th century. It was worshiped as “rain sender”, that served as the guarantor of the land’s fertility and at the same time it’s summit was revered as a place where gods live.

    This is a gorgeous image cclaude, Congratulations on your feature in “60 and Beyond”!

  • Would you believe it’s from a 20 -year old slide? The summit of Cotopaxi is almost always in the clouds, by we got a few minutes of clear weather driving back from Cuenca – on one of the most beautiful drives, the Panamerican Highway south of Quito.
