I recently went through my files from my trek in the Spanish Pyrenees last summer, visiting the amazingly beautiful Parque Nacional de Aigüestortes y Lago de San Mauricio, as I was planning this year's visit and decided to give it some processing love.Just the other day, I learned about the terrible flooding and mudslides that hit the area these past days due to an accumulation of heavy rainfall and the fast melting of this year's massive snow-pack; taking out bridges, roads and damaging houses. While looking at this picture, it's hard to imagine this peaceful looking environment can be host to such direful events. I hope the image can bring a few seconds of visual distraction to all those affected by recent tragedies!
