Huge rock falls on scenic road

A huge lump of rock fell directly on the road in a scenic area known as El Rejo in the early hours of Wednesday morning. The minor road popular with tourists connects the main north road and the main west road through the national park was closed for a while during the clean-up of the landslide.
When driving on La Gomera motorists should be aware of the fact that roads near steep mountainsides and rocky roadsides could produce similar incidents almost anytime and while most of the rockfalls are of minor proportions one just never knows what maybe lying on the road around the next bend. Drive with extra caution on La Gomera, even when the weather is fine !
