Estrada fechada, pistas abertas...

Na passada sexta-feira (4 Janeiro 2008), dirigi-me à Serra da Estrela para "sacar" algumas fotos que irei colocar no meu outro blog Maravilhas da Estrela (que dedicarei a um leitor muito especial).
Mas continuando. Assim que começo a subir em direcção à Serra, deparo-me com a informação, à saída da Covilhã, que a estrada Piornos - Torre estava fechada. Não era algo que já não esperasse, mas como a minha intenção era captar umas fotos por outras paragens que não a zona mais alta, lá fui eu Serra acima.
Ao chegar aos Piornos, dei de caras com dezenas de pessoas, que em jeito de romaria, faziam o percurso em vai-vem desde a "rotunda" do entroncamento para Manteigas até ao antigo edifício dos Piornos... Dava quase a sensação que naquele edifício havia algo de mágico...
Depois havia alguns "agarrados" que à espera da abertura da estrada até à estância, íam matando o vício fazendo umas descidas ao nível do que se conseguia fazer o ano passado na estância... menos de uma centena de metros.

Mas claro, a estrada lá estava fechada...

Curioso era o facto de no site da empresa que explora a estância, estar indicada a abertura da quase totalidade das pistas e meios mecânicos, ainda quando a estrada estava cortada. Mas como dizia o outro, isso são pormenores... os turistas já ali estavam, com os carros em fila indiana, à espera que os responsáveis do Centro de Limpeza de Neve alterassem a informação que estava indicada no painel que antecede a estrada para a Torre...

Enquanto isso, os carros eram cada vez mais, recriando na zona dos Piornos, o que se passa lá em cima todos os fins-de-semana em que há neve.

Mas claro, eu como não ía para esquiar, ía para captar mais umas imagens para juntar ao meu arquivo de milhares de fotos da Serra, lá me dirigi ao Covão d'Ametade...

Nunca tinha tirado fotos daquele local com neve. Era esse o motivo principal que me levava lá, para além de que apesar dos multiplos atentados de que tem sido alvo (relembro os fogareiros e afins) continua a ser aquele local mágico e que merecia bem mais respeito do que aquele que tem sido alvo...

La andei sozinho, por entre esse cenário idílico, acompanhado de um belo sol invernal juntamente com os piscos que teimavam em encontrar algum alimento por entre a neve...

ps1: não sei o que os caros leitores pensam, mas para mim é algo irreal que os turistas prefiram ir visitar o "mamarracho" dos Piornos em vez de visitarem esta maravilha da natureza... não havia lá ninguém... enfim... não sabem o que perdem

ps2: hoje (6 janeiro 2008) consultei o site da empresa que gere a estância. Apenas 2 dias depois do "grande nevão do ano", em que estavam abertas 7 das pistas da estancia, hoje apenas se encontraram em funcionamento 4 pistas (que para mim é apenas 1)... em 2 dias a neve desapareceu da maneira que desapareceu... ainda encontram alguma lógica gastar-se rios e rios de dinheiro (de todos nós) para ampliar esta infraestrutura?

Bom dia:
Por fim, depois do abandono, passei cá. Eu vou-te dizer como é que se sente o turista defraudado quando sem conhecer as maravilhas da Serra aparece no ponto turístico e aprentemente mais maravilhoso da paisagem. Só agora, depois dos passeios pela Serra virtual que constuiras, só agora é que sei onde irei proximamente, só agora sei também quais os becos na net para conhecer a Serra da Estrela... só agora sei que nao faço a mínima de onde passei um ano inteiro.
Fico a saber que para outras coisas valeu a pena: adoro o que aind anao conheço, adoro que ainda fiquem coisas por conhecer.

Este sitio é realmente magnifico.. tem algo de mágico, nao sei. eu pelo menos senti isso..

Os turistas k vão a serra infelizmente vão por aquilo k ouvem falar e ainda bem k este sitio nao ta mt conhecido senao tava cheio de lixo.. e destruido..

Não se esqueça do meu convite para aparecer no forum do Snowportugal!

http://snowportugal.com/for/viewforum.php?f=4

Teremos muito gosto em ter la um amante da Serra Estrela como todos nós!!
