Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands

Ecuador Adventures

This page will contain images from various adventures to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands, spanning multiple years, so I will attempt to identify the dates of the images. Hope you enjoy this section of my blog.

Touring Southern Ecuador

The most current adventure to Ecuador was a 16 day (actual days on the road) or an 18 day adventure from a promotional point of view, tour. We went to Southern Ecuador on a birding expedition, visiting areas that are just starting to become accessible to tourists. We started in Guayaquil and drove out into a countryside as seen in the image below.

This image represents my first impression of the country once we left the urban area surrounding Guayaquil. The wide flat fields, a few trees, and an occasional abandoned building, very similar to what we see in the American west, makes you feel very comfortable with the country.
