2016 Hike Artenara to Cruz de Tejeda, Gran Canaria

0730 hrs left D/L on 8th September 2016 and walked to the Telmo Bus Station to catch the nr 220 bus to Artenara via Terror. Passed 100s of people (pilgrims) walking to Terror for the Fiesta del Pino. The road to Terror had been converted into a one way road for the occasion.
