We've experienced the arid mountains of Quito, but Mindo is a humid, tropical, rainforest area. I like to call it the jungle, but it probably doesn't warrant that name. Our weekend was full of butterflies, hummingbirds, waterfalls, and orchid gardens!! Can it get much more beautiful than that?
|We were able to watch butterflies coming out of their cocoons! It happens very quickly.|
|Orchids are abundant in Ecuador|
|The place we chose to watch hummingbirds was kind of a rip-off. They were beautiful, but we couldn't leave the balcony and were given binoculars. So I got fancy and took pictures through the lenses of the binoculars! Ha.|
