Welcome to my blog on my recent trip to Ecuador and the Galapagos islands! It's not a true blog - simply a good repository for some pictures to share with you. You'll see that I found the sea lions especially photogenic. Enjoy!

Around Quito

The world's second highest capital city at around 10,000 ft altitude. It's also just a few miles south of the equator, despite its mild climate. It's ringed by 12 volcanoes; you can see one lurking in the background of the cityscape picture.
