... the occupants were probably out hunting with their dogs, we also passed another pickup with a large Christmas tree strapped to the back if it, a lovely tree for the centre of a village we presume. At the top of this hill we have lunch, the cloud is occasionally breaking up enough to just see the snow on Mt Olympus in the distance, behind us is Mt. Asso, towering above the surrounding hills. We're off again, still climbing, sometimes on good track sometimes in deep rutted mud ...
