Mountaineering in Ecuador

1993 & 2001

Emmer some handy Andes! The first time I went to high altitude,
I chose Ecuador in 1993 because it was inexpensive, and because my
partner Kevin agreed to go, mainly because he had heard it would
be cheap! Compared to places like Nepal & India, it still is.

The second time, with Steve Harris in 2001, I went because
I knew it was inexpensive, and Steve went because I'd told him it
would be cheap! At the time, one could say I was working per diem
for SH Photography, and was at this time on assignment. Thus, climbing
was per se a business expense. Still, I paid taxes I shouldn't have had to!

Okay, so, here are some pictures until I get the stories up...
