Taita Chimborazo – «Father Chimborazo». Taita means father and is important in local mythology. Although a photo of the entire mountain can show its size, I wanted to share the craggy rocks, the jagged glaciers, and the ancientness of this mountain so I chose a photo that shows Taita’s wrinkles up close and personal. This photo was taken with a telephoto lens on the grounds of the Estrella de Chimborazo Lodge.
