Volcán Tungurahua
As part of our upcoming sensor network deployment on Tungurahua, I needed to hike up to the refugio to scope out the deployment site. This involves a three and a half hour climb, straight uphill, and an ascent of over 1000 meters. Omar and Danny from the Instituto Geofísico were kind enough to let Amy and I tag along with them as they needed to visit the seismic station there anyway.

Here is a view of the hills and mountains around Baños looking down from the point where we started the hike.
