Leaving the mountain hut!

This is Kallergi mountain hut,
the best mountain hut in the White Mountains of Crete!
I spent a night there during a weekend excursion with the local alpine club.

The weather was very unpredictable.
Even just by looking at the photo you can't really tell what's going to follow.
We were caught in a storm somewhere around 1600-1800m high.
Must admit I had a hard time getting back to the hut.
I was feeling really cold and exhausted
and it was a big relief to return to the warm hut
and drink hot mountain tea!

What I learnt that day was to respect the mountains and nature's fury
and follow the guide,
in stead of my ambition to make it to the top.
