12 Days of Photos from my Galapagos Adventure Dec. 2017 (First Set)

My friend Linda and I had an amazing adventure in early December travelling with James Cowie owner of PhotoTrekkerTours and 11 other guests to Quito and the Galapagos Islands.

12 Days in the Galapagos (Set 2)

We visited the following Islands (San Cristobal, Genovesa, Bartolome, Santa Cruz, Floreana, and Espanola) after leaving Quito, the capital of Ecuador. The flight to San Cristobal was apr. 1000 miles and after reaching that destination, we boarded the Archipell I for the trip of a lifetime…especially for people who love to take nature photos. James Cowie was amazing. He has the perfect disposition and photographic skills to lead his tours to places all over the world.
Here are some more photos that are in no particular order. With 2 adventures a day, which began VERY early, it was hard to limit the number of photos one took. I had over 8000 when I got home! Sorting through them has been a monumental task.
I may add some more in the future. I haven’t posted any pictures of Quito and it is a beautiful city 10,000 feet above sea-level. Continue reading
