Friday: First we board a bus and ascend
the highlands to find giant land tortoises.
     
 
                                 
     
                 
       
                                 
               
 

Coffee
anyone?

     
               
                                 

Into the mysteries of the lava tube,
discovered when a favorite cow went AWOL and was found as a skeleton inside the tube!

 
             
           
       
   
The afternoon was spent at the Galapagos National Park & Darwin Research Center.
This is where the future of the giant land tortoise resides -
from collecting eggs to raising them til 5 years old to releasing back to their home islands.
