"A challenging ascent to the highest point of Crete"
Photographs: Maria Chatzikonstantinou
In the horizon the sun sheds its first golden beams
Climbing almost in blind...
... but it's fun!
"Do you see the top?"
Some climbers make you feel ashamed when you almost give up...
The kingdom of stone and sun
The daylight reveals the surrounding summits
Down there, the site of Lakkos Mygeros, where the feast takes place
A colorful human caravan
The end point, just a breath away...
Around the stone made chapel of Timios Stavros
The worshippers of the highest summit of Crete
Only stone and the open horizon
"The things that never happened, are things we didn't desire enough"...but it did happen!
Time for the feast
...and lots of food! See you next year!
