We made it to the Cajas Lake! It was an exhilarating hike and so very beautiful. I believe we were at an altitude of around 14,000 feet by the time we got to the lake. It was nice to make it to the lake and rest for a while and enjoy the fresh, crisp air with our friends and family before we trekked back down the mountain, which by the way only took like 30 minutes and was so much easier. We then had a picnic and our friends made a traditional Ecuadorian hot drink called morocho de leche (milk, tapioca and corn) and it was delicious and warmed us right up. It was chilly up there!
