It is International Earth Day today, 22th of April. I do not know much about this day, but the first Earth Day, on April 22, 1970, is credited with launching the modern environmental movement. This day events are held worldwide to increase awareness and appreciation of the Earth’s natural environment. That is an important issue, not the least since there are increasingly more people in the world. A situation that all the time leads to more consumption and pollution.
There are 34 national parks in Norway. My pictures on this post is from a national park in my neighborhood, Skarvan og Roltdalen nasjonalpark. One of them from july, the other from about the same place, in april. It takes a day to walk to this place, or a few hours on skies. There are no roads or people living there. And there are fewer and fewer such places.
