Our photo of the day is from the gorge of Aradena, which is located in the region of Sfakia.
It runs from the southern slopes of the White Mountains and forms a deep cut to the small beach of Marmara (a little to the West of Loutro).

We are leaving today and I want to thank you for your cooperation....
