Cotopaxi peeking out

Ecuador is full of legends about the volcanoes, in this case the Cotopaxi is one of them. The legend says that the Cotopaxi was in love with the Ilinizas north, who was already married to the Ilinizas south. The Rumiñahui volcano was friends with the Ilinizas south and told him of the adventure his wife was having, this destroyed the Corazon Volcano, who is the son of the Ilinizas , who cried to much the Quilotoa lagoon was formed. This is why the Cotopaxi is covered in clouds most of the time as he is ashamed of damaging the relationship between the Ilinizas north and south.
