After the fire of 31 August which all residents of Ojén and guests of La Posada del Angel had to be evacuated, nature is restoring rapidly. From Ojén you only can see damage on the highest mountains and in a bend on the route to the village. The greatest damage is in the direction of the mountains behind Elveria , but there actually nobody goes. The area of Juanar and the Sierra de las Nieves has not suffered any damage.
Due to heavy rainfall in the last weekend of September, the first rain after 30 April, which initiated to severe flooding in the neighborhood of Malaga, the area starts to become green again. Nice to see that the burnt cork oaks again begin to sprout (see picture). With the wonderful temperatures and the re-facing resting on the beaches, October is a great month for a visit to this region.
