Galapagos

One of the most enchanting places I’ve ever visited is the Galápagos Islands.  Susan and I seldom travel as part of an organized tour but because the logistics of visiting these remote islands seemed rather daunting we booked our trip with Natural Habitat Adventures, out of Boulder, Colorado.  We were not disappointed.  In preparing for our adventure I read a number of books.  Beside those by or about Charles Darwin, one of the most interesting was by Paul Stewart, Galápagos: The Islands that Changed the World.  Like so many others who visit Galápagos for the first time, I sincerely hope to return to these captivating islands.  Below are a few photos from this marvelous adventure.
