The strange Plateau prt2

On my 2nd day in Tercui, I walked-climbed down from the village into the barranco of Tercui. It was dry. I wanted to go up again on the other side. I did that once before in October 2007; but in the years after that I could never find a good spot to do it again. This year I tracked something that looked like an old path. After a while I lost it but managed to reach the surface without to many obstacles. Up there is ‘The strange Plateau’. Something happened there once. I don’t know what, but you can sense it. The plateau looks like a big, thin plate of solid rock that is cracked to pieces like a mirror. Some parts look like water; as if the plate once was fluid and then solidified real quick,so that the little waves got fixed in the stone-surface. There are cracks in the surface with traces of a fluid that was once pushed through it and left signs along the cracks. Maybe someone with more geological knowledge can say something about what happened here…

  1. I love these pictures… and your words make them that much more touching… it makes me want to go there, for the adventure… and for the sense of rarely touched-by-humans lands that your narrative conveys…
    My favorite ones are prts 5, 6, 9 and 10… for the amazing textures, of course… i guess i like to get close to matter… and your pictures often allow for that… thank you Harrie… a couple of them are going to spend some time on my desktop, if you don’t mind… smile…

    • Your enthusiasm makes me smile. Thanks, Caroline and I don’t mind to be on your desktop. 🙂
