    Hi friend, yes Teide is the highest peak in Spain. More than 3700 masl. In Iberia we have some mountains more than 3000 masl in Pirineos and in Andalucia.

    Fascinating. I know very little about Spain. I had no idea snow could survive that long. I am having trouble converting elevation. Can you convert to feet. Don't want to say super lapse rate yet....

    Spent some time in Rota, It seemed to have a California type climate. The potential for great storms off the coast of Portugal was experienced in 1982. While doing a trans-Atlantic we had to mod-lock 195 miles NW of Gibraltar onboard the USS Spruance. Swells of 50 feet with 20 foot waves. I will never live long enough to forget that...

    MAO
