Trip To/From Banos-Ambato #2

We went to Banos/Ambato last week for a week.  We had a driver take us there and pick us up.  We took some really nice pictures along the way---both on the way there and on the way home.  Here are a few pictures along the way:

This is the oldest church in Ecuador.  It was established in August 1534 which is only 42 years after America was discovered by Columbus.  It was still in really good shape.

Here are a few shots from on our way home:

These guys were checking us out too

You see alot of animals tied along the road as they feed for the day

Isn't this gorgeous?  We kept seeing alot of these views

This is a picture of a town where half of it collapsed during a landslide.  You can see the rest of the town just at the edge of the cliff. 

This is a shot of the Devil's Nose Railroad.  I know if you can see it very well at the bottom to the left.  It is where the train backs up and goes back to Alausi where the depot is located.

This was a whole family involved in the harvest.  Last Saturday, people were harvesting all through the mountains.  Our guide told us that this would be the last harvest for the year (remember we are going into winter here now).

Another shot through the mountains

We were above the clouds

My last post of our vacation will be the day that we went into the jungle from Banos to Puyo.  If you ever get a chance, you should really try to see this part of Ecuador.  Enjoy the photos!!  Sue
