Then she'd have no problem with walking up to the refuge I think! Besides, if you walk it it's fine - plenty of space to keep away from the edges.

By the way Margarita - there are 'grounded' indoor toilets too up there. The outdoor one was built for the wow factor I believe!

Funny you should ask about the drive Margarita as I've just been updating a blog about it... the memories came flooding back. It's a stony track, well worn away by melting snow water, and is only a car width in places with steep drops. It can only be attempted in a 4 x 4, or on foot of course. 4.5km...

Clean Monday Volta

On Clean Monday we drove up to Omalos. The tavernas were all packed and there were plenty of families out on the plain flying their kites. We decided to go up to the Kallergi refuge (at 1,680m) in search of snow. Here's a picture taken on the road up to the refuge http://www.livingincrete.net/mount9...

Weather in Chania has been bright today, but black clouds are just starting to come over. We could be in for some rain, but no snow or ice forecast ;)
