It probably has something to do with being close to the equator but it doesn't snow up in the mountains. There is either glacier or rock in the mountains and then all the green. One of the hikers in the group commented he spends time and money on fertilizer trying to get his grass to grow green and up at 12K ft, it's green, green and more green and it's the dry season. Being on the other side of the equator also means the seasons are different. Our summer solstice (June 21) is their winter solstice and instead of fall, winter, summer, spring, they have wet season and dry season.

We inhaled our popcorn snack and waited, and waited and waited for dinner. I was so incredibly tired and ready to forgo dinner just so I could climb into my sleeping bag and go to sleep.
The day wasn't as strenuous and didn't require an early start. After brushing teeth, using the portapotty, I collapsed into bed for a great nights sleep.
