|Teide, the Volcano|
The view was astounding and the rock outcroppings were fascinating. I don't know when Teida, the volcano, last time erupted, but it was smoking when Christopher Columbus sailed, by. According to legend he thought it was a good omen, but his sailors thought it was a bad omen.
Those people who don't believe we landed on the moon, said that the photos were taken here, because it is a bit like the moon. But many plants grow here despite the arid conditions.
