We managed to grab some Internet at a hotel in Santa Cruz an I’m quickly publishing a few 360 panoramas I’ve taken here in the Galapagos.
First we have a shot from an observation deck in the mountains on San Cristobal showing the northern rugged coastline of the island, and you can see the famous Leon Dormido (or Kickers Rocks) which is popular as a dive site where you can see hammerhead sharks. I like how you can see the old suspension frame for the deck canopy when you look up. Check it out by clicking on the “play” arrow and moving the view with your mouse:
Next we have a shot at the edge of the second largest volcano crater in the world called Sierra Negra on Isla Isabela. The volcano crater edge is covered in green vegetation now, but you see evidence of the huge output of this volcano everywhere on Isla Isabela. The town of Puerto Villamil is built on top of lava flows. If you turn around in this 360 panorama you can see a hiker going by on the path smiling. The views along this walk were spectacular!
And finally we have this awesome shot from the NE side of the volcano mountain of Sierra Negra. We were in this area of red lava rock that some of us thought looked like Mars. Here we saw our first view of part of the northern coastline of Isla Isabela and the view was really fantastic on this partly cloudy day. Make sure you zoom in so you can see more details like the hikers further down the trail.
