Skywatch Friday in Ecuador!!!


Just a little diversion from the status quo...



Going to Ecuador to begin our vacation in the Galapagos, I kind of 
thought we'd be heading into the land of sunshine...
This is our first day in Quito, Ecuador...looks kind of like our 
weather today here in Mammoth!!!

We took a gondola up to 14,000 feet altitude...yep...in the Andes!!!
(The top of Mammoth Mountain is a mere 11,000+ feet)
At the top, there was a little visitor center with this cute little 
Nescafe cafe with enormous windows overlooking the valleys below...

  3. That's definitely a place where you want to sit indoors with creature comforts and ponder the power outside.

    If Nestlé has a coffee outlet at 14,000 ft up in the Andes, no wonder they are one of the world's largest food processors!
