Shutterbug Saturday: Baños part III

More photos from Baños! Here are more shots from Rio Verde in addition to some of the shops and some of the buildings outside. I also bought an Ecuador FEF (Fedaracion Ecuador Futbol) jersey at one of the shops and you can see that jersey in one of the photos.

Shutterbug Saturday: Baños part III

We visited Rio Verde (literally Green River in Spanish) in Baños which was quite beautiful. There were some waterfalls over there and rock formations. However, some people have put their names on the rocks. Even with my limited Spanish, I knew that the sign over them said “Don’t write on the rocks.”

I certainly haven’t seen anything like this here in America.

Shutterbug Saturday: Baños de Agua Santa part II

Here’s more photography taken from Baños, Ecuador.

We went higher up in the mountainous part of the town where we saw the Swing at the End of the World which is over 6000 feet above sea level as you’re swinging right in the Andes. Right next to it is The Tree House which overlooks the Andes region in Baños. I tried swinging and it was amazing despite having some issues with heights.

[#TBT] Sleeping At Last/Landmarks [FKA Color Radio] @ Judson University 2009

Here’s a fun concert I went to back in 2009.

This involves Sleeping At Last back when they were a three piece. The opening band was Color Radio (now known as Landmarks). It was great seeing them play at JU.

Here’s some more photos taken at The Quilotoa Loop in Ecuador.

There are some more shots of the volcanic lagoon, but I threw in some shots in this rural part of the country.

Shutterbug Saturday: The Quilotoa Loop

Welcome to The Quilotoa Loop!

Quilotoa is a volcanic lagoon inside a crater. It’s over 12000 feet above sea level and there are some towns built right on the slope right here in the Andes. It was quite a sight seeing this natural scenery and I’ve never seen a volcanic lagoon (let alone volcanoes) in my life until visiting Ecuador.
