Landscape and Panoramic Photography

Andes outside Quito, Ecuador

We worked nearly 4 weeks straight coring lakes in the Amazonian lowlands then shipped our samples back to the States. After seeing my field partners off at the airport, I finally had a full day free to explore. To save time so I could cover more terrain before my flight in the evening, I rode the TeleferiQo from the outskirts of Quito (~3100m) up to ~4000m elevation. I hiked up a ridge line towards a peak, passing a horse corral on the way (first panorama). After seeing some spectacular rays of light poking through the ominous clouds (second panorama), I finally turned around mid-afternoon with enough time to return to Quito, eat dinner, and catch my flight back the States.
