On the trail to Banos, Ecuador

Two people lead three donkeys laden with goods along a narrow hillside path. The rocky path intersects a steep hillside covered in lush grasses. The central area of Ecuador is known for its lofty peaks and traditional Quechua villages. This photo shows the common way for people to transport goods to market over the high passes. Donkeys and mules are well suited to the rough terrain and make ideal beasts of burden for the villagers.
