The forest covers more ground in the left photo, which also offers a view of Rocinha and São Conrado, the Gávea Golf Club, the Hotel Nacional, and part of Avenida Niemeyer. The right photo depicts the early stages of reforestation, initiated in 1862, with Morro Dois Irmãos (Two Brothers Mountain) in the background.
