return back towards territories of work with abundant tracks and
took a way that leaves them and raises contiguous hills the Morrón,
leaving soon fascinating coves without name. There we found great
amount of rocks in form of long columns, sometimes with aspect
of organ pipes. They are strained of andesitica lava that fractured
of that way when cooling off rápidamente.
In the South cliff of the main cove we can appreciate a series
of volcanic layers that tell the small history us of the volcanic
activity of the area. Of down above we see: ashes hardened with
some andesitico block, soon agglomerate of the same rock and above
absolutely the andesiticas taps with its tipicas columns of enfriamiento.
demonstrates to us in the end that the old volcano began to erupcionar
very violently, with many gases that produced enormous and continuous
explosions, but that soon went away calming and left lava with
Seguiremos our itinerary already by the line of beach, although
sometimes is necessary to border some cliff next to mar. Pasaremos
to the two following coves, of great beauty, where we appreciated
the agglomerate andesiticos again. And further on we found spectacular
lava columns, in all the directions and directions, of all the
sizes and shades. Possibly it is here where the formation columnares
is in all their splendor.
a way that climbs up the stop of the cliff, we walked and we enjoyed
the views that offers the Mediterranean, until arriving at the
beach of the Barronal. At the end of this one is gigantic vertical
volcanic Filo’n, where the magma solidified in an enormous crack
within the volcano, without getting to spill itself to the outside.
To the other side the bases of the cooling columns arise, giving
him aspect of ciclópea wall.
Seguimos by this new cove and its aim we return to take an ascending
way that happens next to the beautiful and fragile rampante dune
of Mónsul and lowered to the beach of this name. Here the
sea has eroded cliffs of agglomerate andesiticos and it has turned
them almost a work of Antoni Gaudí. The stroll by these
underminings and cornices, until arriving almost from unexpected
at the cove of the Average Moon, fascinates to us and it astonishes
to us, making us reflect on the enormous amount of explosions
and avalanches that would take place in the eruptions of million
From this wide beach, we will pass by fantastic places to arriving
at an end in form of back from whale, gorgeous to the dusk: the
Round End. On a base of ashes and white tufas one thick andesitica
lava tap flowed, that cooled off quickly originating the columns
of greater height of the zone.
further on, another promontory closes the step definitively to
us and no longer it is possible to continue walking the border
of the sea. One is powerful Filo’n of dacitas, the same rocks
of the Hoyazo, but of reddish color due to meteorización
due to the water and the air. We will have to return back, almost
until the cove of the Average Moon by the track that raises White
Vela, steep andesite hills show to holes and covachas to us excavated
by the erosion: they are taffoni, typical of the heavy volcanic
rocks, that are disgregan with relative facility.
In White Vela finishes our route. From we contemplated to a volcanic
landscape riquísimo in forms there that speak of la eternal
fight to us between the internal Earth energy, that create the
relief, and the solar energy that, moving the air and the water,
