Galapagos Islands, Ecuador

Saturday, February 12, 2005

Its about a 45minute hike from the shore to the summit. The trail begins with a rock and concrete pathway. The walk continues through volcanic sand, which can be slow to cross. Once through the sand the steep ascent continues up a wooden stairway.

The volcanic landscape on the journey up seems barren except for the Lava Lizards scurrying about. Further up volcanic spatter cones with deep red, gleaming blacks and intense greens can be seen on both sides of the trail. The Spatter Cones and Lava Tubes give the feeling that you are hiking on the moon.
