Macizo de Teno | Euphorbia atropurpurea

WI_ctf723.jpg

Once having formed a separate island, the Teno mountains represent one of the oldest parts of Tenerife, and are characterized by deeply incised valleys (barrancos) and a variety of ecological niches. The rain-shaded W slopes are rather arid, and therefore home to succulent plants such as this Euphorbia shrub. Location: Mirador de Cherfe.
