Picos de Europa

A selection from a collection of several score pictures, of which 50 are already scanned, taken in summer during expeditions by the Northern Pennine Club, Oxford University Caving Club and York University Cave and Pothole Club.

The Picos de Europa is an outstanding area of limestone mountains in the North of Spain, the last remaining habitat of the bear, Ursos arctos, in the west of Europe. Though much of it is protected by National Park status, some areas are severely threatened by development.

This valley is particularly threatened by the building of a telepherique - the local residents want a 4-wheel drive track and nothing more.
