Leap and the net will appear

Galapagos Islands

sunny 80 °F

January 1, 2013. First day of the year, first day of an adventure that 2013 promises to be. Walked by an algae-covered salt lake, a black iguana, and many ugly cactus, to arrive at a tear in the earth: Las Grietas. Literally translates to The Crack. Las Grietas is a gash in the the earth - a rip where water has collected, fresh and pretty. It looks like a zipper opened up the earth just so.

Gorgeous clear day, and gorgeous clear water, with fish swimming and rocks gleaming. Made my way up to the top of the crack, barefoot. Contemplated the depth, the rocks, evaluated the angle, over-thought it, and jumped! How's that for a symbolic "to hell with it all, let's take a risk" sorta start to the year?!

Yes, leap and the net will appear.

A few highlight photos from the Islands - giant tortoises, iguanas, boobies.
