NL-1069500

I was wishing lots of snow for this winter but i've got lots of sun instead. Only sun, no snow, no rain, no fog. It was almost 50 days ago that we had rain for the last time... that's not good. NL-1069500, sent by Elsje.

Nationaal Park De Hoge Veluwe (English: National Park The Hoge Veluwe) is a Dutch national park in the province of Gelderland near the cities of Ede, Arnhem and Apeldoorn. It is approximately 55 square kilometers in area, consisting of heathlands, sand dunes, and woodlands. It is situated in the Veluwe, the area of the largest terminal moraine in the Netherlands. Most of the landscape of the park and the Veluwe was created during the last Ice Age. The alternating sand dune areas and heathlands may have been caused by human utilization of the surrounding lands. The park forms one of the largest continuous nature reserves in the Netherlands. - in: wikipedia
