Flowers in Ecuador

I am not able to identify all the flowers in this blog entry except the last one and I suppose most anyone looking at these pictures will be able to make a proper identification on their own.

There are over 4000 species (no kidding) of orchids native to Ecuador.  Don't remember the name of the one above but probably referenced a bird as you might suspect by looking closely at the center.

Ecuador (Summer 2016)

It is coming up on a year since our visit to Ecuador.  Maybe I'll do a couple short blogs with a few photos and attempt to get caught up a bit.

Brenda spent about 6 weeks in Ecuador with Kamela last summer.  Karmen, Kyle & Kalynn and myself went for the last week of Brenda's stay and we were all together as a family for the first time in 1.5 years.  We had a wonderful time!

 Arrival at Quito Airport

Hadn't seen Kamela in 1.5 years, my wife in 5 weeks.  

All of us at Rio Mundo 

 On the hiking trail.

This is the crew Brenda & I tried to keep up with!
