Where in the world are Phillis and Michelle

A few months ago two of my sisters went off traveling the world (without me). I only know this because our mother told me and I got this picture in the mail. This post card was taken at their jumping off point for their final destination.
I had my mom to tell me where it was, could you tell from this picture? I will give you a hint, their destination is linked to dragons . . .

Mount Fuji
No Ed, a swing and a miss
Nepal or Katmandu.
here is your second clue it is also associated with a famous Beagle
OK here is your last hint. This place is all about the wild life, if you were a nature lover it would be a natural selection for best naturalist vacation . . .
Somewhere in Washington State
Stuart you are a trouper, you have put out the effort on this one and I appreciate it.

OK here is the real answer;
the picture is of Quito Ecuador
it is the jumping off point for people going to the Galapagos Islands which is where Phillis and Michelle spent most of their time.

The Galapagos Islands are famous for their Komodo "Dragons" and the HMS "Beagle" who brought Charles Darwin to them. There he developed his "natural selcetion" theory
All correct, except the spelling of my name. That would be PhYllis. What should I expect though, even Mom spelled it wrong once - Phyliss
