Why are you reporting this puzzle?

Many sources claim that Cotopaxi means pooing pile or mountain in an indigenous language, but this is unproven. According to locals who speak Quechua, "coto" means neck and "paxi" means moon. This refers to the crater of Cotopaxi that looks like a crescent moon. The mountain was honored as a "Sacred Mountain" by local Andean people, even before the Inca invasion in the 15th century. It was worshiped as "rain sender", which served as the guarantor of the land's fertility, and at the same time its summit was revered as a place where gods lived.

Thanks for posting this great picture. I like the way the photographer caught the Alpacas in the foreground, gives it more life.

I disagree.

There is only one God and He is Jesus!
