"Track on volcanic slope, Lanzarote" from simon3 Contract pics
Picture: Track on volcanic slope, Lanzarote (Contract pics)

re Vulcano, Sicily
Brenno, fascinating stuff. I have come to appreciate the sparse beauty of volcanic landscapes in the Canaries and can immediately relate to the rock shapes in your picture. I have an ambition to see molten lava in the process of bubbling and running around some day, be it Hawaii, Iceland or indeed Sicily.
On Paul Tempan's walk along Sallagh Braes and north of there on Sat we walked along a huge scarp defined by a huge volcanic outpouring millions of years old and so weathered that it sort of looks more like the usual landscapes in Ireland.
The photo here has some of the much more recent (geologically speaking) rocks of a place near Femés in Lanzarote. Unremarked and not so remarkable on that island, but a riot of clashing colours and textures compared to Ireland.

Incidentally you wouldn't happen to have a GPS track for your perambulations around Vulcano?

As mentioned by Harry Goodman, it's possible to drive along Belmore forest for almost two kilometers as far as a black forestry gate. There is also a standard gate here on the right giving access ...

Nothing much to add to the comments already. Drove most of the way up from the North side of the hill to within 450 metres of the trig point. Nothing to recommend to anybody who is looking to get ...
