Scenery en route to the volcano. The vegetation became very lush the higher into the hills we traveled.
Moist, warm air gets pushed up the high hills on the south side of the island causing rain. Not much of this rain reaches the north side of the island causing it to be semi arid.
El Progreso, is the oldest surviving settlement in the Galapagos Islands, established in 1869. Today the town is a sleepy farming community.
Remains of the very first house on the island.
Climbing to the top of the volcano.
View from the top of the volcano to the north-west.

Frigate birds.
Frigate birds, also called scissor tails because of the their thin tail feathers which open and close like scissors.
Frigates dipping into the fresh water in the crater to clean their throats of accumulated salt from fishing in the ocean.
Strong and beautiful wild horses roam the volcanic hills.
