June 20 - Crete - Samaria Gorge

On our first full day in Crete, we hiked the 16 km long Samaria Gorge. We were driven to the top of the Gorge on a bus and then we hiked to the sea (over 4000 feet in elevation loss).

The wooden staircase of the Gorge.

Bridge leading to the abandoned village of Samaria.

The narrowest part of the gorge, only 3 meters wide.

The beautiful (and cold) beach at the end of a very hot hike. The ferry's would take us back to another town to meet up with our tour bus and wind our way back to the North side of the island to Chania.
