Galapagos Part 1: Penguins & Lava Rocks

Axel, my mom, and I had the opportunity to visit the Galapagos Islands this summer. 
It was the trip of a lifetime!

Crabs covered the rocky shores.

These islands were formed by volcanos. 

You can see the patterns of lava formation in the obsidian stone.

The only thing that can survive these harsh conditions is the lava lizard.

We saw penguins on the shore in front of Pinnacle Rock.

Later that day we snorkeled with some penguins.  
They swim so fast, they look like little bullets. We even saw one of them catch a fish!

Later when we went for a hike, a sea lion was blocking the steps of our dock

She was not bothered to move at all when we walked right next to her.
