Azores 2006 & 2007

The Azores are an archipelago of Portugese islands in the middle of the northern Atlantic Ocean, about 1,500 km from Lisbon and about 3,900 km from the east coast of North America.
The nine Azorean Islands extend for more than 600 km, and lie in a northwest-southeast direction. The mountain of Pico on Pico Island, at 2,351 m in altitude, is the highest in all of Portugal. The Azores are actually the tops of some of the tallest mountains on the planet, as measured from their base at the bottom of the ocean. The archipelago is one of two Portugese Autonomous Regions (the other is Madeira).

These pictures are from 2006 & 2007 visiting the two islands Sao Miguel and Terceira
