Feb 06, 2018 - National Geographic Endeavour II
To awaken in the western realm of the Galapagos is to be transported back to a time when the land was newly formed and fresh for exploration. We start our day at the base of Alcedo Volcano, where we walk upon an area uplifted from the ocean in the 1950s. Giant tortoises, land iguanas, and numerous Darwin finches are encountered as we explore. Navigating to Tagus cove in the afternoon, we walk in Darwin’s footsteps. Surrounded by Galapagos penguins and green sea turtles as we swim, we are accepted as part of this environment. As the sun changes its luminosity in the late afternoon, we witness the Galapagos penguins returning to shore to bathe in the late light of our setting sun.
