El Cedro 1

So we arrive on the small volcanic island of La Gomera and take the bus from the ferry port to the Hermigua valley on the north and wet side of the island. We are there early enough to give us time for an afternoon walk and so we decide to head up out of the valley to El Cedro on the edge of the rain forest. It turns out to be one of the steepest and most unremittingly uphill paths I have taken for many years, though fortunately not that long. Here, near the start of the walk, we look back towards the valley and one of the dramatic rocky spires that dot the island landscape.
