On the edge of Samaria
 

We went for a walk along the eastern edge of the Samaria National Park a few days ago. Part of it is a tremendous ridge walk with vertical cliffs falling hundreds of metres into the large side gorge of Samaria. The top photo was taken from the highest point of the ridge (marked in red in the lower image so that you get an idea) at 1950m. So you are looking into the gorge almost 1.5km lower than where you stand. I have a very good pair of binoculars and I could see walkers on a short portion of the path that was out of the trees and visible.

And across (slightly left of centre in the photo), you have the summit of Volakies which is the western border of the National Park. I had a photo taken from that point last year.
