Flag of Greece  , Thessaly,
Thursday, March 26, 2009

Our next stop in Greece was the hill top monasteries in the north part of Greece.  The country side in this area is really amazing with jutting mountain pinnacles going up to the sky and then monasteries sitting on these high pinnacles makes for some awe inspiring scenery.

We walked to the first monastery through the country side and then up the cliff.  What views in every direction.  Looking down on the crop land, look down on lower mountain top monasteries, and then looking out to the snow capped mountains in the distance.  It was a joy to just walk around in the fresh air.  And reminded us so much of the Rocky Mountains and home!

It was a great day and the last day we have in the country side before we start hitting some of the big Eastern European cites.
