Crete is a stony, rocky place and nowhere more so than on the plateau that runs between the White Mountains and the coast of the Libyan Sea. This barren landscape (here to the South of Aradena) looks like a random jumble of stones until you look at more recent satellite imagery on Google Earth and realize that, until recently (a century ago?), it was cultivated and has been shaped by man for thousands of years.
