Commemorative Hike from Quito to Otavalo

The annual trek from Quito to Otavalo takes two full days. Halfway through the second day, you are rewarded with a view of this remote lake high in the mountains (the photo does not do its scale justice). The hike commemorates the journey that Otavalo's university students had to make once a week in order to attend school in Quito before the highway was built.
