Flamingos and Rábida Island

Rábida Island is a small island near the center of the Galápagos archipelago.  The sand on its beaches and the soil elsewhere are red due to the high iron content of this particular island’s volcano.  The contrast between blue sea and sky, red soil, and white palo santo trees was stunning.  We tasted wild tomatoes and hiked up to a beautiful viewpoint. This was one of my favorite sites.
