A Walk in the river from the best jacuzzi in El Rio to the washed out waterfall near the nacimiento (spring)


This is the best jacuzzi in El Rio.
This is pure selenite crystal rock.
Excellent little swimming pool.
This is our Oasis jungle.
and some more jungle.
A little pool with Blondina illustrating the depth of water.
This photo gives an idea of the water flow in the river.
Beautiful valley.
and more beauty
Going through a little cave.
Moving into the river from the washed out waterfall.

Blondina demonstrates the depth of water.
You can see how the water level has dropped this year.

The waterfall is no more. It washed away last March when we received 255 mm of rain in the month.

First wildfire of 2023 - Scary

The intensity is impressive

Our Mediterranean bushes are very flamable

The olive tree is surrounded

The fire spreads
The tree is engulfed and burns

Fire has reached the mirador lookout

Brilliant helicopter work

The water bomb

Delivered with precision

The Fire God ready to hurl a ball of fire in his right hand. !
