High Fens on fire

So far for bragging about the hot dry weather in Belgium....a few hours after we left the Ardennes yesterday and litteraly drove by this road on the images which is only a few kms from our weekend get-away, the nature park caught fire. 

1000 ha of nature has been destroyed but the fire is now under control.  Let's hope the peat and boglands didn't get damanged deep inside too much so nature can reclaim over time.

scary stuff...glad they caught it before it did too much damage and yes nature will lay claim to her once more.
