The trail started off with a short section on the road and then it was up a snowy track to the Roque de Muchachos, the Rock of the Lads, which are actually a little group of vertical rocks. The paper notice advises caution on the snowy paths.
And here is the most famous wall on the island. It is called El Pared de Roberto, Robert's wall, is completely natural and you actually walk through a large gap in it. You won't be surprised to hear that there is a folklore story all about it. Watch out for it on the www.fincafranceses.blogspot.com in the next week.
In the photo below, David is testing the depth of the snow with the snow pole, I mean walking pole, which turned out to be an impressive 3 feet. Luckily the actual path wasn't covered to such a depth.
