View to Teide from Mirador de Jardines
I started this walk from the stunning Mirador de Jardines viewpoint from where I had breathtaking views across to the peak of Teide as puffs of cotton-wool like cloud threatened to obscure the volcano.

Roque del Agua
The village of Los Catalanes
Descending steeply now, I plunged once again into the forest, eventually emerging to yet more postcard views of Roque del Agua and the small village of Los Catalanes nestled quietly in the floor of a beautiful valley. I paused for a while to take in the peace and quiet as I enjoyed the views of the laurel forested mountains surrounding Los Catalanes.
Views of Roque de La Forteleza
Continuing, I followed the path as it circled around the flanks of Cabezo del Viento, soon passing the scattered houses at La Forteleza from where I had excellent views of the imposing Roque de La Forteleza.
