Views of Tenerife

Visited Tenerife for the first time last month and really enjoyed the volcanic scenery. Here are some of my photos from there.

My favourite trip was to the Teide National Park. Mount Teide is the largest mountain in Spain and the third largest volcano in the world,  reaching to a height of 3,718 m above sea level and 7,500 m above the ocean floor.

If you look carefully, you can see the cable car towers on the right hand side of the mountain. Here is a view of the cable car from the top.

The park has an area of 18,990 hectares and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and apart from Mount Teide itself, it is renowned for the geology of its volcanic rocks. Here are three more images which I think show the coloured layers of the rock to full effect.

The evidence of volcanos is evident all over the island, and here is a view of the sea water rock pools at Garachico, Tenerife formed by molten lava after a volcanic eruption in 1706.

Moving away from volcanoes, we spent one morning whale and dolphin watching off the resort of Los Gigantes. The boat was rocking too much and the pilot whales and dolphins were too quick for me to get any good images of them, but I do like this one.

While we were watching the dolphins, other people were doing something for more adventurous, parasailing!
