Created in 1954, Teide National Park is the island’s oldest and most famous park, which was established to help protect and preserve some of the wonderful sights that are found within its boundaries.

It’s undeniable that one of the most striking and impressive sights on the island of Tenerife is Mt. Teide. This soaring summit, crowned by snow and ice, is actually a sleeping giant. It’s a dormant volcano that’s the highest peak in Spain, and is responsible for much of the way the island looks today. Its last eruption was in the late 18th century, but it has a long and violent past that contributed to some of the island’s most stunning – and most dramatic – scenery.

Part Two of my travelogue of our week-long-best-ever summer road trip in the Canadian Rockies, where the term “it’s a pleasure to drive” takes a whole new meaning. We visited some of the best known sights of Banff, Yoho and Jasper National Parks, including the beautiful Lake Louise and Emerald Lake, as well as the Athabasca Glacier of the Columbia Icefield en route to Jasper.

Misadventures at Silverton Falls

It had been a long time since I had seen mountains and I was (over) eager to do some hiking/trekking in the Rockies. For me, it was rather necessary to go hiking at least one while I was there – otherwise it would be the equivalent of going to an amusement park and not taking any rides! I think trekking is the best way to get close to nature and the best way to see the beauty of nature. It instills a feeling of love, appreciation and respect for nature.
