...about the plant in the left foreground.
This nice andean plant is achupalla. It's kind of a small cactus with a pineapple pocking out of its center.
You can find them anywhere above 4,000 m in the ecuadorian Andes.
Thanks for your comments and votes Sarah!
This is a very nice and well composed picture.

This is one of the most beautiful crater lakes in Ecuador. The view from up there is amazing!
Thanks for the comment David.
... and picture! I remember that nice place! I climbed Fuya Fuya!
Oh yes!.. this is a nice area. Can't imagine how this huge caldera was created.
This is one of the three most visited crater lakes in Ecuador, along with Quilotoa and Cuicocha.
Fuya Fuya is a nice hike/scramble. I bet you liked it!
