The highlight of this trip: most challenging and most rewarding: The hike from the third highest mountain (Pico do Ariero, 1818 m) passing by the second highest to the highest (Pico do Ruevo, 1861 m) takes 14 km from the lower parking space to Pico do Ariero and then on to Pico do Ruevo and back; it's 1000 m down and 1000 m up, lots of stairs, a couple of ladders, a few tunnels, many walkers, amazing views. Unfortunately the weather was too good: no clouds so no way to be above the clouds.   Epic Trailer by LesFM | https://lesfm.net Music promoted by https://www.free-stock-music.com Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/deed.en_US

Thank you - and right on all three counts. I was really knackered when we got back.

That's a real bit of English slang you've picked up

Either one works for me.  

Just for a matter of information - The origin of the word "dude" is attributed to New York City slang; it originally referred to a fastidious man who is very concerned with his appearance, grooming and manners. The most common definition of "dude" is simply a general form of address referring to a man, a woman or a group.

That's a great video Depp and the landscape is really interesting. It would be a real endeavour to get through without the path though.

Thank you, sky!
Yes, without a path it would be pretty crazy. A couple of times there was an older abandoned path visible.

Wow, this video took my breath away! Not only did the copter capture the stunning beauty of Madeira from above, but that girl model had some serious catwalk skills! I mean, who needs a runway when you have the cliffs of Madeira as your stage? She strutted like a pro, showing those birds how it's done. I couldn't help but imagine the copter pilot doing a double take, like, "Wait, did I accidentally stumble upon a fashion show in the sky?" Kudos to the team for turning a scenic tour into a haute couture extravaganza. Madeira just got a serious upgrade in the fashion game!
