Giron Falls + Yunguilla Dry Gulch, Ecuador [04:47]
The Giron Falls are the highest in Ecuador, falling 104 metres and are very impressive. Taken June 29/12 on a cloudy, rainy day. We stopped at the 104m high waterfall of Chorro de Girón, which is surrounded by cloud forest perfect for our short hike. We then go down the road descending in altitude until we reach the subtropical farming area of Yunguilla at 1500m for sugar cane, bananas, coffee, flowers, fruits and other crops. Lunch included at a local restaurant or private farm. Here we wandered through this dry gulch which has interesting geological phenomena happening.

Chimborazo from the Air [00:33]
The inactive stratovolcano Chimborazo (Spanish pronunciation: [tʃimboˈɾaso]) is Ecuador's highest summit. Its last eruption is thought to have occurred some time in the first millennium AD. Its summit is generally regarded as the spot on the surface farthest from the centre of the Earth, at a distance of 6384.4 kilometres (3967.1 mi). Chimborazo is located in the Cordillera Occidental of the Andes of central Ecuador, 150 km (93 mi) south-southwest of the capital Quito. It is a neighbour to 5018 m high Carihuairazo. Chimborazo's majestic summit rises 2500 m above the surrounding highlands (~3500 to 4000 m) with a ~20 km wide base. Under clear conditions the summit of Chimborazo can be seen from the coastal city Guayaquil, nearly 140 km away. The nearest cities are Riobamba (~30 km to the southeast), Ambato (~30 km to the northeast) and Guaranda (~25 km to the southwest). Chimborazo is surrounded by the Reserva de Produccion Faunistica Chimborazo which forms a protected ecosystem to preserve the habitat for the Andes native camelids vicuña, llama and alpaca. The top of Chimborazo is completely covered by glaciers, with some north-eastern glacier arms flowing down to 4600 m. Its glacier is the source of water for the population of the Bolivar and Chimborazo provinces of Ecuador. Chimborazo glacier's ice mass has decreased over the past decades due to the combined influences of global warming, ash covers from recent volcanic activity of Tungurahua, and the El Niño phenomenon ...
