Thanks once again denalibound for the kind words. Chimborazo is actually on my "to do" list.

This was the key to quickly identifying it as a tropical Andean volcano.
An interesting tidbit about Chimborazo...if measured from the center of the Earth (as opposed to elevation above sea level), Chimborazo is estimated to be the highest mountain on the planet. This is due to the equatorial bulge.
Great idea for a quick guessing game...maybe we should do it daily!!
Have you climbed Chimborazo?
