La Cumbrecita

Saturday, June 23rd 2007

From Tazacorte we headed inland, planning just to head back to Santa Cruz. But we passed a sign to 'La Cumbrecita' and thought we'd investigate. The road led us through the forests in the centre of the island, and eventually became a single-track dirt road. We were not sure if we would be coming to anything worth seeing, but La Cumbrecita turned out to be pretty awesome. When we reached a small car park at the end of the road, we found ourselves on the south side of the caldera, with a view across to the northern side. Mist was pooling in the caldera, and clouds were flowing over its walls, evaporating as they tumbled down.
