There is just a tad of a difference between your scenario and actually telling people they can safely ignore warning signs. I hope the irony is not lost on you?

But they are not warning signs though unless they state the authority that issued them? Who put them up? A local school boy ?Any old fool!?

Welcome to Crete! Let me know when you see an electricity meter reader in uniform!! Or the water meter reader. In fact, how about the postman and his official ΕΛΤΑ car? How about the wardens at the head of the Samaria Gorge who prevent people from walking the gorge during the 'Closed Season'? Nothing official about that lot - so I guess you can/should/will ignore them?

Like I said, Welcome to Crete. Bob.

Big diffrence though!! the Samaria Gorge is fully staffed during the open season ,Meskla Gorge is not . The Samariagorge has gates ,fencing and barriers to close it off ,the Meskla gorge does not ,it is un barriered and completely open . Any sign issued saying somewhere was closed or Dangerous would not have any basis legally in a court of law ,unless the site for which it appplies had been physically barried off or gated .No signs would have any legal basis in a court of law unless they had been signed or stated who the issuing authority was !! So sorry Bob you are completely wrong on this occassion!

Given all of the Seismic activity over the last months, it might be dangerous due to falling rocks, not just the walkways. I keep my distance from most of the gorges and steep rock faces that I come across in Crete. I've witnessed a few rock slides already, it's very unpredictable.

You said: "Went walking in the Meskla Gorge yesterday despite the signs saying Gorge closed / Gorge Dangerous. Don`t be put off by the signs but be careful"

Totally irresponsible and you were pulled up on it by a number of us here who know that it's impottant to take these type of warnings very seriously.

Insulting and name calling isn't tolerated here.
Locking this thread now.
