TGO Challenge 2007 : day 4

Part 4 of my TGO Challenge 2007 movie is now published. It has taken a while but life is very busy, and if I may say so, very hectic at the moment.
We had some rain last night, the first in many weeks. The 2011 Challenge starts in a fortnight and I'm in perfect condition having covered 135km on foot in the last 6 days.
It's a pity I won't be doing the Challenge this year. Enjoy the movie !

Green leaves, for how long ?

This picture was taken just 6 days ago in our local neck of the woods. Spring really got moving on but at the moment large parts of woods and heather in Holland have a Code Red. It means that fire is a severe threat and open fire, bbq's etc. are strictly forbidden.

We haven't had any serious rain for at least 4 weeks now and every day we're having fires in forest, dunes, heather and moors. The lush spring green will soon darken to summer green. Too soon, too fast.
