So I did it! I went up to Pachnes all by myself Saturday....all
alone on the mountain. Clear blue sky whilst all the lower
parts of Crete were under the clouds. The mountain in the background
is Psiloritis, high enough to pop out of the cloud cover.
After a really pleasant ascent with crampons on iced snow
- very fast because of my Himalayan altitude
acclimatization- I was up there...listening to the silence and feeling Crete
again. A young golden eagle even flew by to see what I was
So now I feel that I am back and the Daily Photo of Crete
can start again until my next travel to Nepal.
