Cayambe glacier and valley

I spend 2 and a half day camping at 4790 m (15,700 ft) on the Cayambe volcano. I climbed up 3 times the ascent route till the highest part I could go in security without technical mountain gear (+/- 5050 m – 16570 ft). This was the only time that the valley wasn’t covered by clouds. Fortunately I was carrying my tripod. This image was taken at 7:46 AM
