ABC Wednesday—G is for "Galapagos"

These well-tended—by which I mean aggressively
left in peace, if that's not too much of an oxymoron—
volcanic islands have to be the most incredible
place I've ever had the privilege to visit.
(I'm pretty sure I'll be back for the letters H and I.)
What you see here in the foreground is an
ancient volcano that's now under water.

  2. What a beautiful sight! There are many volcanos--underground and not-so-underground--here in New Zealand. I find them quite fascinating, too.

  7. An amazing place. When you first arrived to the island, did you pinch yourself to make certain you were not dreaming?
