Bartolome Island

This morning we took a panga to Bartolome Island, which is famous for its Pinnacle Rock and for its 360 views of other islands in this part of the Galapagos.

We started with a panga ride, where we got some great shots of penguins and blue-footed boobies.

We then hiked up something like 368 stairs (the kids were counting!), viewing lava tunnels and testing the weight of volcanic rock on the way.

At the top, we reached this spectacular view.

All in all, this was definitely one of the trip highlights for me, as the views were iconic, and the weather was perfect.
