SUNDAY, APRIL 8, 2012 - Happy Easter everybody! I've already made my last visit to the Los Cristianos Sunday Market now, I swear, I am going to get my blog up to date with pictures and postings about our two days of rental car travels around this beautiful island! I want to be done so I can leave here on Tuesday evening with a clean conscience of nothing left undone!
I thought it was beautiful here near Los Cristianos, then was blown away by La Gomera island and now I don't know how to find the words for the different and amazing beauty we have seen recently.
Let's get started!
Mt. Tiede - Volcano- 12,198 feet
Last Thursday we headed up out of sunny, sea level towards Arona then started the winding drive up and up through some small villages, changing flora (from dry succulent to an actual pine tree line) and up into clouds thinking that we might NOT get a good view of Mt. Tiede with this cloud cover hovering! We burst through the clouds and into the "Parque Nacional de las Canadas del Tiede" where the sun shines (although there is a chilly breeze at this altitude) and see a huge lava filled crater with, at last!:
After our trip to La Gomer and before this little adventure, Geoff ran a half marathon "XVI Medio Maraton Las Galletas 2012". He did a great job in the run and finished officially in 2:09:22!
