We walked the tough trail from the village of Fikardou to the village of Lazanias, then down to the river bed towards Mahairas and back, involving several demanding uphill and downhill sections, on Saturday 28 March. Hiking poles proved a good tool. There were plenty of interesting things to photograph. We experienced rain during the initial 20 minutes, and crossed the river stream safely. A bite of chocolate was a well-deserved reward at stops.
