Ecuador 2011

Ecuador ~ June 2011 - I jumped at the chance to return to Ecuador when I learned renown photographer Tui De Roy would lead the Galapagos adventure, and this then gave me the opportunity to visit the Amazon Rain Forest. An 11 day Galapagos trip organized by Galapagos Travel and 5 days in the Rain Forest along the Rio Napo on Garzacocha Lake at La Selva Jungle Lodge made for stupendous bird, bird, bird, bird watching - and of course there were sea lions and iguanas, and even monkeys, snakes, piranhas, and arachnids, but the latter were in only in the jungle.
