Nice work ~ YSL I hope that you enjoyed your visit ~~~

Thanks Nick. This was my third visit to Tenerife and I feel I have seen all I need to now. The massive caldera is one of the most amazing places I have ever visited. Quite breath taking (especially at an average altitude of 1.25 miles). We needed some time away and we wanted good weather. We took the 8yo grandson on his first flyaway holiday and he loved it.

I first visited Tenerife by myself back in the early seventies on a package tour. I hired a little moped and rode all the way to as near the top of Tiede as you could and then took the cable car and climbed the last few metres. You are right an amazing place :~) & the ride back down the mountain much easier than going up! Last visited around ten years ago and yes there is still much to admire and much to avoid ~~~ All the best ~ nick

Rock of ages springs to mind here Keith. When I think of Tenerife, I think of hoards of tourists. But it seems most of them stay near the coast. Great that you got up here - lovely views.

Cheers, Amelia

Thanks Amelia. That's exactly what it is! The Rocks of Garcia are far older than Teide.

We don't mind staying in "Tourist Hell" if it acts as a base allowing us to visit places like this.
