Manizales and Santa Isabel Volcano

From Santa Marta I flew to coffee country, starting off with the small city of Manizales. Manizales is an odd city just by its shear topography. It's built precariously along a mountain ridgeline, with the main street running along the ridge and the rest of the city receding down the sides, which makes for great views and strong calves.

While in Manizales, I hiked up Santa Isabel Volcano, which gets up to 15,000 ft and features a glacier at the top. This environment is another example of a paramo, similar to what I hiked outside of Bogota.

At the top you reach the glacier. You're at 4800m at this point (15,700ft).
