Weekly Photo Challenge: Grand

On a recent rip to the Canary Islands, we took a tour of the island of Lanzarote.  The island is about 80 miles off the coast of Africa and is an autonomous province of Spain.  The island has been inhabited by Europeans since the 14th century.  It was devastated by a volcanic eruption in 1730, which lasted until 1736.  Most of the island was covered by lava and ash, creating this landscape.  A very interesting tour.
