Walking in the gorge of Samaria

 

Walking in the river bed of the gorge of Samaria. This part (just past the 10th km from the upper entrance of the gorge) may not be quite as narrow as the 'Gates' but I find it far more spectacular as the cliffs on both sides are much higher and display some amazing folding which gives a good sense of the incredible pressures to which the island of Crete - standing at the meeting point of the African and European tectonic plates pushing again each other - was and still is subjected.
