So nice in the spring

We started from the lower end and walked our way towards Topolia for 20 minutes, and then came back.

Had a great time visiting this gorge plus many others. Spectacular views. The drive to this was amazing as we had to go round and up the mountain.

Very good drive to find the real Crete. Hidden side roads leading to hidden tavernas. Had one of our best meals in one of these.
