Canada Goose Jackets Rare Canary Islands Dragon Tree grew on Tenerife cliff Canada Goose Jackets

canada goose clearance sale Icod de los Vinos and the Drago MilenarioNow whilst the city of Icod is famous for its 1,000 year old Drago Milenario and I often go to view that amazing and ancient specimen, to see one of these trees in its natural habitat is a real thrill. There are hardly any left growing wild anymore so to discover one of these within a short walk from where I live really made my day. canada goose clearance sale

canada goose In comparison with the mighty canada goose clearance sale Dragon Tree in the park in Icod canada goose factory sale or many others in gardens and other places on the island, it is a small Canada Goose Parka example of its kind, but when you look cheap Canada Goose at what it is growing out of Canada Goose Coats On Sale it is a wonder it has got as big as it has. It is such a terrible place for a tree to grow out there on canada goose clearance a rocky crag high above the path below, and yet, perhaps because it is in such a difficult place to get to is the very reason it survives. canada goose

canada goose coats I carried on walking and my eye was caught by a whole group of fig bushes at canada goose uk outlet the Canada Goose Outlet side of the road and there were plenty of fruit developing on them. cheap canada goose uk That is one of the wonderful things about Tenerife, canada goose coats on sale that you can actually find exotic fruit growing wild here. canada goose coats

canada goose black friday sale Another plant that I noticed clambering all over the place was the Balloon Vine Canada Goose online with bunches of its small white flowers and strange inflated bladder seedpods, which give buy canada goose jacket it its name, both on the plant at the same time. The “balloons” remind me of the orange red ones you get on the very ornamental Chinese lantern plant. canada goose black friday sale

canada goose coats on sale In some of the rough ground at the edges of my path were masses of the Canary Wormwood and in fact I have seen this small shrub growing very commonly in the area. It doesn’t look uk canada goose outlet up to much on first sight with its grey green foliage, scruffy appearance and tiny yellowish button flowers but it is actually a very useful medicinal herb and a close relative of the Wormwood they make the potent spirit absinth from. canada goose coats on sale

canada goose clearance Canary Wormwood is used as a tonic for the digestion, to ease depression and even as an insecticide and for getting rid of Canada Goose sale worms, as well as many other properties but I like to crush its aromatic foliage and take a good whiff of its amazing smell. In Spanish it is called Incienso and canada goose uk shop this is very apt because it is like natural buy canada goose jacket cheap incense. canada goose clearance

Canada Goose sale Absinthe is reputed to be a drink that causes hallucinations and you might think that perhaps I was suffering canadian goose jacket some side effects of inhaling the smell of the Wormwood, because next I spotted a pyramid poking out above the bananas and grapes at the side of the road. Luckily I had my camera Canada Goose Online with me at the time and can show you what I saw. Canada Goose sale

Canada Goose Outlet Now I had heard that there is a pyramid in Santa Brbara, which is outside Icod and I have been meaning to investigate but I had never heard of a pyramid in San Marcos and yet I had found one. Of course the question is the same as that which is asked about the Pyramids of Gmar who made these mysterious monuments? Canada Goose Outlet

Canada Goose Parka The Gmar ones are famous because of all the publicity they get from the Ethnographic Park they are housed in and all the backing of shipping magnate canada goose uk black friday Fred Olsen and explorer the late Thor Heyerdahl who created the place and suggest that they were built by the Guanche people long ago. However, some academics and sceptics claim otherwise and say the pyramids are of comparatively recent construction. Canada Goose Parka

cheap Canada Goose I have heard various theories including the idea that farmers here used to use up stones on their land to build these monuments to show off to their neighbours. My finca has got a bigger pyramid than yours that sort of thing! cheap Canada Goose

canadian goose jacket I have also canada goose black friday sale heard that there were many more pyramids on Tenerife and that they were made by the Guanches but have been destroyed over the years by farmers and land owners who saw no value in them. canadian goose jacket

canada goose store Now to be fair to the Ethnographic Park in Gmar, it does have a question mark as a symbol against all the displays of information about the pyramids there. They are encouraging you to make up your own mind about them. canada goose store

canada goose deals Naturally, I will Canada Goose Jackets endeavor to find out more about this San Marcos pyramid and canada goose any others I can discover. It will be my quest for the lost pyramids of Tenerife. canada goose deals

Canada Goose online Footnote: Originally published in the Tenerife Sun newspaper in 2006. Canada Goose online

buy canada goose jacket Update: Sadly since this was published there was a rock fall from the cliffs where this Dragon Tree was growing and the area had to be closed canada goose coats off from the uk canada goose public. There was a rock fall on the cliff it was on and they have closed off the road past and are working on securing the cliffs.
