Weekly Photo Challenge: Descent

??????????From Bartolomé.

We had several steep hikes on this trip, but the most rewarding was climbing the volcanic cone on Bartolomé for a great view of the famous Pinnacle Rock.

On the way back down we were more at leisure to marvel at the volcanic spatter cones and other cool lava formations on Bartolomé, one of the younger islands in the Galápagos chain.  We could also see out over the water to other islands.
