(Near Volcano Chimborazo and Guaranda Ecuador)
My friends Hank and Marie trusted my recommendations and veered off the beaten path to view the lovely snow-capped Volcano Chimborazo. Beyond “Chimbo” was the quiet Andean city of Guaranda, our destination for the next few days.
Time slows while white-knuckle driving through dangerous cloud-shrouded mountain switchbacks. I had traveled that road ten years earlier, and at times I wondered if I had pointed us in the wrong direction!
“I’m sure Chimborazo is out there.. somewhere.. It will be on the left..” A bit of self doubt washed through my psyche as we peered around each curve.
Marie followed my lead as we directed the clouds to lift.. “Come on – please? Lift, lift, LIFT!” Like a director at a play, with chins lifted in positive trust, we silently communicated via a flipping motion with our hands…
We rounded a curve, and…
Yes! Yes! We squealed like children, and we almost cried!
