Rambling on the Akamas

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.

It might not look so pretty, but there is more to see.

Don't lean over too far. Nobody will hear your cries for help from here...

Our Destination

This was our actual target.In spring this looked like an English Country Valley. Now it looks like a scene in a Spaghetti Western.

Thick Walls

There is an old, semi-abandoned farm here, now home to some pigs.
