Random street scenes from Quito...


After 21 hours...

of continuous travel - from Spokane to Seattle to Los Angeles to Lima, Peru and finally  to Quito, Ecuador - I have finally settled in and met with other Zegrahm staff as we plan our tour of this sprawling city at 9,400 ft above sea level.  The magnificent snow and ice-covered Cotopaxi stratovolcano looms in the distance;  fingers crossed for an eruption!

It will be southern hemisphere springtime...

when I explore the west coast of South America on this upcoming Zegrahm expedition.  (I am on personal leave from the university the next three weeks.)  Here's a map showing the itinerary of the voyage where I will work as the geologist lecturer and guide, as well as expedition photographer and Zodiac driver (click to enlarge):
