El Golfo & Los Hervideros

After visiting Timanfaya, we drove south to the town of El Golfo. El Golfo is where the mineral Olivia was discovered. The town also has a lagoon that is emerald green in color and has black sand beaches.

We were able to purchase some raw Olivia mineral samples so MJ & I can add it to our mineral collection. We started the mineral collection as a project from cub scouts and it has continued to grow over time.

After leaving El Golfo we continued south through Los Hervideros. Los Hervideros is a series of picturesque cliffs along the coast. The views are just out of this world. One only has to press the shutter button on the camera to end up with photos that look like they belong in National Geographic. Truly spectacular.
