Found it Timbuktunext found Lagoa das 25 Fontes

Sunday, February 19, 2012Arquipélago da Madeira, Portugal

Had a very nice trip here. Walked to the forest house on foot, then continued to the 25 Fontes falls. The levadas along the way gave opportunities for some very nice pictures. It is a very nice place, and I expect it would be even nicer if the weather had been nice. On the way back we decided to go a different route, by going down into the valley floor, do a westerly shortcut, and then climb steeply up back to the forest house (walk 47 in the Rother Madeira Walking Guide). It was a nice trip, but the climb up at the end was a bit steeper than anticipated. A landslide had wiped away the path, so we had to climb straight up the muddy hill, hand and foot.


Picturesque path.Some portions of the path towards 25 Fontes are quite picturesque.

infoAn Earthcache is an educational form of a virtual cache. The reward for these caches is learning more about the planet on which we live - its landscapes, its geology or the minerals and fossils that are found there. Many Earthcaches are in National Parks. Some are multi-cache in form, and some have a physical log book located in or close to a Visitor Center. Earthcaches are developed in association with the Geological Society of America.
