Photograph by Sean Hacker Teper
Attached to a simple wooden tree house on an overlook near Baños de Agua Santa, Ecuador, the "end of the world swing" gives courageous visitors the ride of their life—an unprotected swing over a canyon. Sean Hacker Teper, who submitted this photo to the Traveler Photo Contest, got something extra: A perfect view of Mount Tungurahua erupting nearby. "Minutes after the photo was taken, we had to evacuate the area because of an incoming ash cloud," he wrote.
