Timanfaya National Park, Lanzarote

We had an awesome day out today, visiting an active volcano in Lanzarote. I drove up the LZ-2, North, then joined the LZ-67 until we reached the National Park. We then took an excursion at the peak of the volcano around the debris from the the last eruption. The Montañas del Fuego (Fire Mountains) were created between 1730 and 1736 when more than 100 volcanoes, covering more than 50 km², rose up and devastated this part of the island (including several villages). The last eruptions were in 1824, however due to the low rainfall (and therefore lack of erosion) this area appears much the same as it did just after the eruptions. Check out some of my pics here.
