Today’s Image of the Day from NASA Earth Observatory shows large fires burning across the Garden Route in South Africa.
The Garden Route is a popular road trip destination which features over 120 miles of beaches, national parks, and incredible views.
By November 4, six wildfires had burned over 332 square miles of land across the coastal route.
