Photographer's Note

As far as I was able to find out, bermejo means in Spanish bright red or simply ginger. I suppose it is easy to guess where the name of the mountain, Montaņa Bermeja, came from. Interestingly on the other end of the La Graciosa Island, there is another volcanic cone called Montaņa Amarilla, which is Spanish for yellow. There is also Playa Lambra, meaning Amber Beach. You can only guess how colorful this island is. Montaņa Bermeja rises 157 m above the sea level and because it is next to the beach, this is the exact height you need to climb to get to the top. If you want to get a feel for the scale, maybe you will be able to spot a white dot along the trail on its left side near the top. These are two hikers. Interestingly one of them was blind and was led to the top by another. The path is quite straight and easy though so even my daughter made it to the top without complaining too much. From the top you can admire the most beautiful beach on La Graciosa, Playa de las Conchas. It was a place quite hard to get so there were almost no people around. Along the hike we met just these two hikers and later another one.
