Visiting Isla Santa Cruz in the Galápagos Archipelago

Charles Darwin Research Station (continued)

I have five more pages of pictures, after which the story continues.

An acacia tree.   I believe this is a Palo Verde tree.

This might be a Palo Santo tree, but I'm not sure.   It's a spider (duh!) but I'm not sure what kind.

One of the trails through the research station was via an elevated boardwalk, which gave you a good view of the terrain and vegetation. In this area the ground was so rough and the vegetation so dense (arid as it was) a ground-level path would have been impractical.   One afternoon as I was leaving it clouded up and looked like it might rain, but it didn't.

I don't know what these berries are, but they were the only bright red berries I remember seeing. Even though we were walking separately, Marcie has this same picture. We both have a "good eye" for pictures, and it's not surprising that we wound up with some of the same pictures.
