LAS HAYAS, RONCESVALLES, SPAIN
Las hayas, the beech trees were magnificent in the Spanish Pyrenees.
The top drawing was done in this forest right out of a fairy tale, such old trees
very tall covered in thick green moss, so green, as you can see from the photograph.
We found out about this book, Natural Monumenof Navarra.
In 1991 the government of Navarra designated 31 of it's oldest trees natural monuments.
The book is a great resource with detailed information and maps that will lead you right to the specific tree!
