3 walks over the past week, for me. I travelled to the wonderful Canary Island of La Palma, with @Rickshaw Phil and we enjoyed a fabulous week of sunshine and scenery. Walk 1 (Roque de Los Muchachos) We hired a car and drove up to the North of the island and wound our way up many hairpin bends, to the world famous observatory. Heavy snow had fallen over the previous week, and so the road was shut at the entrance to the observatory, meaning we walked the remaining 2.5 miles up to the highest point on the island, at approx 7900 ft. By far the highest elevation I’ve ever walked at. The walk is on tarmac and so not particularly challenging but the views were astounding, of the Caldera de Taburiente and out towards Tenerife, where we could see Mount Teide peeking through the clouds. We then descended back to the car, having completed a 4.9 mile walk in glorious sunshine, which felt warm most of the way round, even though the temperature was approaching freezing at the summit. 4.9 miles with 1155 ft of climbing. Some shots to convey the views.
