Photo Journal: Scenes of Ecuador

Here are a few photo’s from a recent trip to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands.  The mainland of Ecuador is definitely worth several days or a week exploring Quito and the surrounding villages like Otavalo.

Otavalo Market
Otavalo Market – One of South America’s best open air markets. The mark of a ‘real’ market in my opinion is seeing the local farmers setting up shop to sell their produce and livestock!
Red crabs in the Galapagos

Ziplining in the Mindo Cloud Forest
Zip-lining in the Mindo Cloud Forest – Anyone can do it, and it’s a fun way to explore the different ‘levels’ of the canopy of the cloud forest.
