Photographer's Note

Hello Trekkies,
Although I took this photo in Spain, it looks very "American", isn't it?
But this is not Nevada! :) This is Parque Nacional de Teide. On the right hand side you can see famous "azulejos" - Los Azulejos is a word in Spanish used to describe tiles that you would place on a wall inside a house or in the garden. Typically they are placed in peoples porch ways in the South of Spain. The tiles are often a blue and white type colour.
However in this case, due to volcanic activity, there is an area very close to the Roques de Garcia where the rocks have been stained a blue colour.
The name in this case implies that the rocks have been tiled in Los Azulejos tiles giving them this painted appearance.
Thank you for seeing!
Chris
