Today there was a tour without large red sandstone rocks.
It started from the Hilschweiher.
A beautiful pond with (in normal times) boat rentals and catering.
There are also two small artificial waterfalls.
Afterwards you had to cross many bridges.
The next destination was the Hesselbachhütte, which was beautifully made of wood in the round building. This offered itself to rest before it went downhill to the sand meadow pond with the rest house on the spruce trees.
A nice stopover was the poet's grove with the small tree library.
The visit to the Friedensdenkmal made me think of better times and my earlier visits to the Rock am Friedendenkmal.
All in all, it was a very nice tour with many refreshment stops outside of the Corona times.

First tour after our hiking vacation back in the Palatinate.
From the parking lot in the Wellbachtal it went up the entire Eiderbachtal. For me it is the second most beautiful valley with a stream after the Karlstal.
The second point of the hike was the Eiderberg. Here you have a nice overview to the southwest including the Annweiler Forsthaus, new name Schwarzer Fuchs.
We went back to the starting point via the closed bar. The direct path to the parking lot in the Wellbachtal across the steep slope was great with lots of boulders to the right and left of the path.

Today we wanted to do another crater rim hike between Pico de la Cruz and Pico de la Nieve.
Drive off and a huge wall of clouds in front of the tunnel. Then high clouds over Santa Cruz. Then about 20 km and what feels like 500 serpentines up the mountain. At first it took forever to reach the lower edge of the cloud. After that the visibility in the clouds got worse and worse 😟 We got closer and closer to the starting point of the hike. But unfortunately still in the clouds 😟
So on to the summit and there it was warm, windless and cloudless. So we enjoyed the cloud game here 😀😀😀PS: The pictures are typical for Komoot when they are added afterwards completely messed up 😟

Today's short hike starts at the Cumbrecita parking lot.
From my memory it is the only parking lot on the island that you have to reserve in advance.
In contrast to the last few days, the crater peaks were not visible today.
But the caldera and the clouds in interaction had something!
I originally wanted to do two more tours from the Cumbrecita but unfortunately both are closed for security reasons 😱🤮😱

Today was the well-known top tour through the laurel forest.
But for me it is not one of the highlights of the island. There is something nicer.
From the information booth it goes up the Barranco.
The first 1.1 kilometers it is a tar road, then it flows into a stony path for 1.5 km, before it flows into the really great and interesting Cubo de la Galga from kilometer 2.6.
This is a narrow path that winds through an aquaduct, rocks and huge ferns (up to 3 meters high). Part of the path is guarded along the edge of the deep, partly only 2-3 meters wide gorge.Unfortunately, this premium part is over after about one kilometer. Now comes another wide forest path, which approaches the mirador with a view of the sea at the same height.
The Mirador is so oversized that it makes you dizzy, how many
EU funds were wasted here.
Similar to the 400 meter long quay wall and the expansion of the port in the amount of 35 million for the mooring of cruise ships.
OilNot even 10 have invested in the 20 years 😂😱😂
Now there is another Komoot highlight, the ravine and an ascending cross path, which joins the way there just behind the beautiful aqueduct. Then it goes the 2.6 km the entry way back to the parking lot.

The unfinished caldera hike in Komoot.
For me it is actually the most beautiful hike from La Palma 😟😀
Even the second time it is still an impressively varied tour.But first the tour started too late in Komoot and then stopped too early due to an empty battery 😱🤮😱
It was actually 14.9 km with 300 meters of ascent and 1,140 meters of descent.
