WI_md140.jpg

View from the summit area of Pico Ruivo in NE direction down the Ribeira Grande and to the humid N coast of Madeira. The mountain hut in the centre of the scene is the Casa de Abrigo - Pico Ruivo. The heathland in the foreground (here affected by a wildfire) represents the characteristic vegetation above the upper limit of the laurel forest.
