One of the most beautiful nature reserves in Europe burned, most likely completely, during the first week of August, 2012.  Marian and I hiked in from the south entrance [public outcry stopped a road that was to be bulldosed along the coast into the park] on two wonderful days.  We walked along the coast the first day and up over the mountain and down
toward Scopello on the second. We both have treasured memories.  The link below takes you to some photos which will just have to suffice until the vegetation regenerates.
