Svalbard, Canary Islands, and Spain

4/1/2015: We woke up a bit earlier today, and we were able to make it to the park for the dawn flight of vultures. Really, there were vultures all around the park. Oddly, a lot of the park protects a hydro dam and a forest that was clearcut (which spawned the park's creation).
