A Jolly Good Hike: Platres 22 May

With the weather on our side, a large group of Strollers in high spirits took the challenge of the climb from Platres to Troodos, all along the Kryos Potamos river, and the return on the slopes of Pouziaris, in a circular trail expertly led by Lowell. Rewards were plentiful: the Caledonian waterfall; the dense foliage of black pine, golden oak and other trees; the murmur of river water flowing; magic views to Platres, other villages, Kourris dam, Akrotiri salt lake and as far south as Limassol coast; and a buffet lunch at Troodos hotel. Compliments to Lowell for leading the hike, to Gerard for carrying cooled water melon, which he generously offered to participants on toothpicks, and to Teresa and Christine for the photos. Join us on 29 May on Troodos, for the final excursion of this season.
