Today we did a glorious hike up across a Cretan mountainside that was fragrant with wild sage and into the Zaros gorge a ways. I was worried about weight on my back, so I just took my small journal (I was also with my family without a lot of time to paint), but I couldn't resist just a few quick sketches. In the repacking, I forgot my regular pens and pencils, so these are ballpoint and watercolor.
I loved all the twisted small trees out on the open ridges.
