Beautiful scenery, looks like there must be nice hiking trails up the hill above Quito.

It’s a spectacular photo, Ray. As you can see, grass is dry because of the summer; normally is deep green. Actually, Quito is surrounded by 7 volcanoes; three of them have perpetual snow. After Mount Blanc and Mount Kilimanjaro, Cotopaxi, close to Quito (which snowed base appears back in the photo), is the third most climbed mountain in the world. No matter how many times you do it: landing in Quito is a complete experience.

Even if I know well this airport, that's an impressive picture! Thank you very much.
