The Path on the Top of the World

By MunroWalker  
Image taken on 16/3/2015

The Path on the Top of the World - This path lies at just 500 feet from the summit of Mount Teide 3,555 metres ( 12,195 feet) above sea level.

This is a third of the crusing height of modern jet planes ! The lack of oxygen at this height was noticeable on yours truly, every few steps was an effort. However my quest to get that special shot paid off.

The image was taken looking South over the great canyon and onward over the hills to Las Americas and Los Cristianos on the coast. On the right can be seen the island of La Palma in the distance.

The clarity on my visit was amazing, the sun strong, but temperate, with occasional patches of snow lying. Truly a trip of a Lifetime.

Thanks for viewing my work and also your helpful and encouraging comments.
