Robert Grimstone / For The Times
Curious tourists, all in a row. Six hundred miles west of Ecuador, visitors to the Galápagos island of Española strike a pose for a group of sunbathing sea lions. Charles Darwin may have drawn attention to the islands in the 19th century with his theory of evolution, but those who come here may tell you that their true draw is the wonders that occur when nature is allowed to thrive unspoiled.
