On the banks of the majestic Cotopaxi mountain,
one fateful day in 1877, flora that had reigned over the ashes for centuries was destroyed by the wrath of a volcano.

Like rivers of fire, the pyroclastic torrents, sweeping everything in their path, leaving behind a landscape of destruction that still provokes memory today.

The explosion, powerful and noisy,shook the earth with its roar, announcing to the flora its powerand the fragility of time in the face of nature.
