What a beautiful weekend! We traveled out of the Quito-Cumbaya area this weekend to see a much different area of Ecuador. We have gone out of town before and seen many indigenous people with the traditional dress, but those days were mostly filled with shopping and weren't really worthy of pictures. Our trip to Mindo this weekend, however, kept me excited and loving this country so much!

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.
