The view of Páramo de Santa Isabel from a site known 100 years ago as Laguneta, is a reflection of the transformations this landscape has seen in 100 years. When Chapman took this photograph 100 years ago, he was standing on a clearing surrounded by montane forest. Today there is a large pine plantation and cattle pastures with small relicts of the forest. The view of the Central Andes from this point clearly shows an impressive reduction in forest cover. The current photo was taken by Glenn Seeholzer.
