Driving around the Andes mountains by 4x4 is quite an experience. Dirt roads twist up and down the steep hills overflowing with brilliant green in all directions. This picture, taken (with permission) of two local Ecuadorian woman and their dog, shows a bit of the nicer roads we travel. Off-camera to the right is the road on which we enter, and behind is a sharp U-turn that link the two. Flowing over the 180-degree curve is a tiny waterfall, a creek really, trickling down the mountainside in a happy burbling stream. It bustles down the grassy rocks, wearing a pebbly-path across the muddy road, and down into a ravine it has been carving for a thousand years. A beautiful sight wherever you look.
