Galapagos Trip 2006
This photo was taken in the morning at the top of the "Teleferico".

I made arrangements to take a tour
of old Quito in the afternoon of the 20th. I met a couple of "Brits" at
the hotel and they told me they were going to the Cable Car in the morning
and would be back in time for my Quito tour. I was not able to go with them
on the bus, but I was able to get a taxi and met up with them at the summit.
There were beautiful views on this cloudy morning and it was a little cool.
The "Telefarico" opened in June of 2005. This Quito cable
car, reaches half-way up the Pichincha mountain. It is beautiful but very
high-- about 14,000 elevation. The base of the cable car station is a mini-mall
with some shops and restaurants, and a small amusement park.
