  1. Looks high up to me, Pine forest/ krumholtz on one of the Canaries maybe, I’ve looked closely at the fullsize picture but I haven’t spotted the cute little lizard which would be the giveaway, however the pine needles are possibly in bunches of 3 which would be correct for pinus canariensis… Small lava bomb, context makes me think it landed in a flow/deposit of softer stuff (whose colour is distinctly Canarian) and has “eroded out” since. Gonna guess Teide as the process of erosion looks like heating/cooling/seasonal freezing with a certain amount of moisture involved, that requires altitude at this latitude…Difficult to tell but but the debris flow makes it looks proper steep too…

    Dunno if this is exactly what you’re after, but this is my scoring guess for Name That Lava 1…

    Some tourist info on El Teide:

    You can visit Teide even without a car, there is one bus a day from Los Cristianos in the South of Tenerife and one from Puerto de la Cruz in the North (both leaving the bus station at about 9am ish, returning from the National park at 4pm ish.) It is well worth knowing that if the first bus is full TITSA will lay on a second (and ensure that there is enough room for everyone on the return journey.)
    Anyone can ascend to the “observation platform” which is approx 200m short of the summit either walking (for the superfit, with thier own car, i’m almost certain there is not enough time for this using the bus, though staying in the Parador Nacional del Teide is an option…) For the less energetic the cable car whisks you up there in a few minutes apporox 30 euros return… you can cable car up and walk down (or vice versa) but you will need good knees 😀
    If you want to visit the summit you will need a permit, available online from the National Park Authority, this is an arduous climb (200m, scchteeeeep, at altitude) from the cable car station…
    Please remember that even at the base of the cable car, you are at altitude (2500m ish, my ears pop on the bus journey 🙂 Take care those with heart/ respiratory conditions, the cable car is definately not recommended x
    Sounds obvious, but watch out for the weather, it can be chilly especially at the top of the cable car (-5c one time I went!!!), but the sun is fierce because you are usually above the clouds and the wind will dry you out nearly as quickly as the sun…
    All in all, a grand day out x

    • Hi steve. There is a little glitch there as the picure was taken near Roque Nublo in Gran Canaria. If it struck me it was because it was lokking like a pillow lava, but was at about 1400 m high.
