Day 2 of Kielian DeWitt’s gogeous photos from her recent trip to Ecuador. If you missed yesterday’s post, here’s what she had to say: “I was entranced by the variety and colors of the flowers and produce in Ecuador during my recent trip there. Traveling from Quito at 9400 feet up to 16,000 ft (climbing part way up the Cotopaxi Volcano), back down to Cuenca at about 8300 ft and finally hitting sea level on the coast in Esmerelda, I saw some fascinating plant combinations. Unfortunately, I don’t know many of their names, but despite my lack of knowledge, I wanted to share some photos with you.
“The cool humidity and moderate temperatures at the higher elevations in this equatorial country remain a comfortable 70-75 degrees year-round. Night time temps require a fire in your room (not many hotels were heated, but those that weren’t boasted fine fireplaces).” That fruit. That FRUIT!! Sigh. Thanks, Kielian, for this tour of the sights. Heavenly.
