[Gerês [en.wikipedia.org]- Portugal ]

This is probably one of the Most beautiful Natural places from North of Portugal. There are a lot of tourists, and no one can resist the beauty of the river.
Although something is happening this year, which is worst than other years. These pictures were taken today, and what you actually see , is not a normal mist, but a smoke mist, provoked by the fires that are burning and consuming the trees from this beautiful place. Every year, my country faces exaggerated fires and some of them (if i can say, MOST of them) are caused by human beings. It is stupid, because I (we) know that some people have fun causing fires to these natural places… first they should be protected because beauty is something to save and enjoy..not to burn and destroy.
I hope, all that try to put fire on them, would die in that instant by the fire, because we are not humans burning beautiful natural and protected places.
I don't need to go far to see fires like this, some meters from my house, every year, some stupid people decide to burn some pine hill near by..this makes me nuts.
anyways, even with this smoke mist, I guess there is still beauty, and you can see how Gerês is amazing.. its a pity I couldn't take too many pictures.

Ainda bem que há jovens como o Ricky a pensar assim. Eu fico revoltadissima com esta tragédia todos os anos e os culpados deviam ser severamente castigados. Realmente um lugar para preservar.

Fantastic pictures of this lovely place. It is so terrible that a few loonies try and destroy it and I can understand your anger.

I believe one of the most important things we can do is take care of the Earth. Great post!

You are so right about that Ricky! People who set fire to a forest are stupid stupid people! These photos are great even with the smoke.
