Ecuador has some breath-taking scenery and many hidden treasures, some completely overlooked as people head straight to countries like Peru or Colombia.

Where were those dogs when you needed them?
How great that you did part of the Quilotoa trek and saw that beautiful crater.

Ah well, all a part of the adventure. You really should get out and see it when you have the chance...maybe not the same trek as us though haha
