Photo of the week: week 5 above the trees in Mindo 🌲☁️

I took this high above the trees in Mindo, a small town not far from Quito that is surrounded by forest-covered mountains.

A cable car (locally known as the tarabita) carries passengers from the road, across the trees, to la ruta de cascadas, a series of beautiful waterfalls in a valley.

The tarabita zooms along pretty quickly, but half way across I managed to snap this photo of the incredible view.

It was amazing to be above the dense rainforest and to feel as though I were in the clouds.

A full post about my time in Mindo is coming soon.
