Montanha do Pico | Western slope with heathland

WI_api064.jpg

W slope of Montanha do Pico, view from approx. 2100 m asl. all the way up to the rim of the summit crater. There are no trees or shrubs growing here since the smaller, more compact plants of the heathland are much better adapted to the challenging conditions prevaling at this elevation.
