Our next Ecuador Living Update unveils a real adventure when Steve, our man in Ecuador , rides deep into the Andes in the remote area near us.

Steve began the update by writing:

“ Gary , Do you remember how we can stand on the third floor at El Meson outside the suite and see the Andes stretch out ad-infinitum before us? I know you do because I’ve seen you and Merri sit outside with your laptops enjoying the sun and the view. To our right and slightly closer than other mountains is Volcan Imbabura, and to the left a chain of volcanoes and mountains starting with 16,000’ Volcan Cotacachi to the left and then they stretch to a blue haze where clouds rise on vents up through a gap that leads down to the western cloud forests.”

(Here is the view of the Western Andean range from our suite at El Meson.)

Steve then continues: “Well, if you remember, we have often heard of a high, remote, virtually un-inhabited paramo moorland behind the chain of mountains to the left as we look out from the El Meson balcony. It’s rumored there are highland trout lakes and deer and coyotes, even puma and spectacled bears. Well, in the name of discovery and adventure, I decided it was high time to put an end to rumor and discover the truth about this ‘mystical’ land.”

And off Steve went.

Steve had a choice of three horses to ride and said, “I get by just fine on horses as long as they behave. The art of getting along with these fine animals depends much on choosing the right one in the first place; so when presented with a choice between Lightning, Humming Bird and Ungrateful it was a no-brainer. Humming Bird it was!”

After fording two mountain brooks and climbing over a thousand feet they reached an isolated lake at 12,000 feet called Laguna Donoso.

The guide assured Steve that 10 days previously he’d caught eight trout “this size”, spreading his hands two or more feet apart. Then as the horses gazed disinterestedly the guide showed him how to cast very graceful arcs over the still surface.

We will be reporting the full story shortly at Ecuador Living.
