We took the 4 legged children for a walk in Parc Natural de la Serra Calderona. It was gorgeous, fab scenery, fresh air and very few people, but as we wandered along dirt tracks, surrounded by mountains, the mind started wandering (as normal).
What wildlife might still exist in the caves high up in the hills? How many millions of years have these rocks been untouched by humans? Will they still be there in the next millennium?
Human beings have made such an impact on the planet that we call home, and yet when you are in un-spoilt wilderness, looking at rocks that have been there for millions of years. It makes you realise how small we are as individuals, compared to the landscape. Let’s hope future generations will value this and not let greed destroy the small parts of our planet that remain as nature intended.
