Photos Of Galapagos Islands

Although very hot, it was the wet season
and there was plenty of vegetation and flowers.

Prickly Pear cactus flower.

Lava cactus, typically the first
plant to arrive on fresh lava flows.

Fish Market, Puerto Ayoro.

We had some great sun rises and sets, this one on
Isabela Island.

The crater of Cerro Negro is the 2nd largest in the world,
after Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania.
No herds of animals here, just lava.

It was Sea Turtle nesting season, and we saw
many tracks on the beach. There had been
about 12 turtles here the previous night.
Rugged face of Big Daphne Island.

Volcanic activity in evidence on Isabela Island.

We saw some very nice beaches, this one on
Mosquera Island.
Our home for the week, the Angelito.
