  Forgotten Roses

Most objects of interest in the Parque Nacional del Teide are appreciated with information boards. These two stone roses unfortunately not.


Forgotten Roses

Watch this EarthCache location on YouTube or visit our YouTube EarthCache Channel.


The Forgotten Roses are the result of a combination of processes which were initiated when the lava river got cold, which formed this singular geological structure. When the lava is solidifying, its mass contracts and cracks. That´s why when the rocks are exposed to the wind and weather, they sometimes tend to crack adopting some characteristic shapes. In some cases, when the rocks are broken into hexagonal prisms, organs are created. If the cracks are of a radial type, "stone petals" are easily loosen, producing the formation of roses.

Erst raste der maxteil am Earthcache vorbei und musste extra noch einmal wenden, damit der simteil aus dem Auto heraus die Fragen beantworten konnte.
Vielen Dank für Nr. 2973 sagt das maxsim-team

It is really a pitty, that this place has no dedicated information board or anything official, because it is the biggest stone rose Velberlinle and myself have seen so far.
But however thanks to Geocaching this is an insider tipp.
Thanks for having us stopped here to take a closer look

During our second day on Tenerife we wanted to visit the volcana which we had already seen from the plane. On our way to and from the Pico del Teide we could visit quite a lot of interesting earth caches and learn many things about volcanism and its impact on earth and landscapes. This was one of these caches.
