Part 07/8 of Glenn Bartley’s month-long trip around Ecuador.

After 4 spectacular days on the East Slope we traveled back to Quito for the night.

The following day those of us who continued on the trip extension took a short 30 minute flight into theEcuadorianlowlands and prepared to travel into the Amazon Rainforest.

We then took a boat nearly 100km down river deep into the jungle.

After a few hours we arrived at our wonderful jungle lodge where we would spend the next 4 days.

If you think that a bird photography adventure to Ecuador might interest you make sure to e-mail me to sign up for the wish list for my workshop that will begin in 2013.
