Over the last century man has broken his equilibrium with the res of the planest and caused serious damage to the earth. Rivers have been dried out. We hope the streams that are left will remain intact and that our hopes for the future will not be deluded. The mountain streams in the Pyrenees represent what is left of the wild life. Warching their disruptive force it looks as if they cut deeply into the earth.
