We spent our last full day in the Galapagos on San Cristobal. This is the first island that Darwin saw after navigating nine days from the coast of Perú. In Punta Pitt, our visiting site for the morning, we encountered a very different trail than on previous days. This time, we walked uphill along a waterworn ravine. San Cristobal is located in the eastern part of the archipelago. It is one of the oldest islands of the Galapagos. From the top, we enjoyed a magnificent view of the Pacific Ocean and got a closer look at red-footed boobies.
