Lake Powell Boat Tour
I'm standing at the railing of the boat and stare in awe over the crystal clear blue waters at all the amazing rock formations, it feels so unreal, like I'm on another planet. No wonder this area has served as a film location for so many movies, Planet of the Apes being a well know example. I'm soaking the vistas surrounding me like a sponge and simply cannot stop gazing around. The wind is blowing through my hair and the sun is providing a pleasant warmth .. what a perfect day it is! I'm on a boat tour on the enchanting Lake Powell, Glen Canyon and am on my way to the famous Rainbow Bridge.

The Galapagos Islands - located about 1000 kilometers west of Ecuador - consists out of 21 islands disseminated on both sides of the equator. This paradise on earth is an archipelago of volcanic islands, Isabela Island is the most active one with 5 volcanoes still active. Some of the other main islands - amongst others - are Santa Cruz, Fernandina, Espanola, Floreana, San Cristobal and Bartolome. The many endemic species on the islands, helped Charles Darwin with his theory of evolution based upon natural selection. He noted for example that although the finches on each island belonged to the same family they all evolved differently to adapt to the specific conditions and environment on each island. I hope you'll enjoy my Galapagos Photo Journey of this nature lovers heaven.
