it is awesome to see and yeah saw it too in Tenerife

equalibryum 1811 days ago

Nice find!

Yep, that's coral.

HennoAbq 1812 days ago

It's volcanic ash! In Tenerife near the Teide (mountain) there's dunes made of smaller sized ash like this. When it snows in the winter kids take their surf boards and ride the dunes. Cushy if you fall too.

Those the bones of dead triathletes?

"If they are lava rocks, then do not remove them from the Islands. The Hawaiians believe that people who take lava rocks off the islands will be cursed." : So THAT'S what happened to Beloki on La Rochette, he had these cursed white lava rocks in his muset

Lance, Was this pic taken near Puako or Mauna Lani? I think I've run this path.

Remember Not to bring anything back with you as it is bad luck to take any lava from Kona... ...

Lance: I have been on this beach and it is something! Hope you will do the Ironman as it is an awesome event -- stay well

Lance, you must race Kona when you retire from Cycling. It could be comeback 3.0. The Aussies keep winning, give the Yanks a chance!

So I'm guessing somewhere in the lava fields it says Armstrong 8 Contador 2!

leecris 1813 days ago

Hey, these are ordinary white rocks - there are places all over the islands where people have spelled out messages in white on black

I've been waiting for you to race Kona ever since you appeared on the cover on Triathlete -- what was that, about 20 years ago!?

johnwiberg 1813 days ago

Lance, you gonna ride up Mauna Kea? I'm so jealous.

LarryBirdy 1813 days ago

Are also Fossils to be found there? I once collceted them when I was younger. This stones look like chalkstones( if they are not corals) and Chalkstones they sometimes have Fossils included in them like at the british Cost at the North Sea. How old is Haw
