Punta Pitt & Cerro Brujo

Apr 06, 2018 - National Geographic Endeavour II

San Cristobal Island is one of the oldest of the Galapagos Islands, as it sits on the eastern end of the archipelago. All of the islands are the result of the activity of a stationary volcano-producing area located to the northwest of the islands.  As an extinct volcano, San Cristobal Island is now exposed to the elements and little by little, it will deteriorate and crumble back into the ocean.
