Rambling on the Akamas
In the past we have blogged about the lovely spring flowers on the Akamas, and the lush, green valleys. We thought we would go for a wander in early autumn, to see how the countryside compares...
A Mystery Object
Starting out from Pano Arodes, we headed out towards Avakas Gorge. We were headed for a particular spot that has some interesting crystal formations in the rocks. On the way, we notice this odd contraption. In the spring we would have missed it, as it would have been covered in undergrowth. This is the advantage about exploring in Autumn. It might not look so pretty, but there is more to see.
This was obviously a well, thought the contraption does appear to be a bit over-engineered.
Down The Well
Don't lean over too far. Nobody will hear your cries for help from here...
This was our actual target.In spring this looked like an English Country Valley. Now it looks like a scene in a Spaghetti Western.
There is an old, semi-abandoned farm here, now home to some pigs.
