Photos of our Journey
by Scott and Beverly Zimmerman
About the Book
This book contains 78 pages and over 300 photos of our trip to Ecuador and to the Galapagos Islands in November of 2011. Scott attended a Rotary International Project Fair in Quito to get ideas from Rotarians from Ecuador on international humanitarian service projects that our Rotary Club of Pleasant Grove could support. Scott and Beverly visited sites in Quito and also went to Cotopaxi National Park, the Equator Museum, Otavalo, San Antonio de Ibarra, Cotacachi-Cayapas Ecological Reserve, and other sites on the mainland. They also traveled to the Galapagos Islands, where they took a 4-day cruise of various islands, including the incredible Española Island with its blue-footed boobies, Galapagos hawks, lava lizards, albatrosses, and Nazca boobies.
