Bonne journée de la Terre!:-)

Montaña del Cuervo est un volcan situé au centre de l’île de Lanzarote; il culmine à 374 m d’altitude et c’est un cône volcanique formé lors de l’éruption de 1730. On peut se balader à l’intérieur du cratère uniquement, puisque l’accès au sommet a été interdit pour éviter le piétinement et préserver la surface lisse des graviers. P.S. au fait, je suis signe terrestre, donc, c’est ma journée, aussi… 🙂

El Cuervo – The Raven – surrounded by a “lava sea”…

Montaña del Cuervo is a volcano located in the center of Lanzarote island; it rises to 374 m altitude, and it’s a volcanic cone formed during the eruption of 1730. One can walk within the crater only, since the access at the top has been forbidden to avoid trampling and to preserve the smooth surface of the gravel. P.S. btw, I’m an earthly sign, so it’s my day, too… 🙂

Happy Earth Day and have a lovely week, folks! 🙂


La Graciosa Canary island – graceful, indeed!:-)

La Graciosa – Spanish for “graceful” is reckoned as the 8th island of the Canary archipelago; it’s located 2 km north of Lanzarote island, it’s a tiny paradise(8x4km) of arid land where some 700 people live. 10km round trip hike to get at the top of one of its volcanoes – but what a view!!! 🙂

La Graciosa & its Montaña Amarilla(Yellow Volcano)

N.B. There are NO natural water sources on the island, thus, desalinated water has been piped directly from neighbouring Lanzarote since 2001. Lanes and roads on La Graciosa are unpaved sand; motor vehicles are strictly prohibited – bikes allowed – my kinda place! 🙂
