Volcán Tungurahua
After a rest at the refugio I stumbled up the hill with Omar and Danny to check out the seismic station. At this point I was starting to feel the effects of altitude sickness (we had gained over 2000 m in elevation from Baños to the refugio in just a few hours). The antennas here are transmitting seismic data back to the observatory and thence to the IGEPN in Quito.
