Let’s start at the very beginning

What's the first thing that comes in your mind looking at the picture above? I guess that words like wild, arid, inhospitable or even dangerous, are poping up. But I bet that no-one is thinking that this is a nice place for walking. And yet, that's exactly what happened a few days ago!

But let’s start at the very beginning :)

Last Wednesday I was with @traisto and our four-legged companion camping at a quiet beach, not far away from our home. I have told you all about it in this post. The beach was at the end of a gorge and since I woke up, I saw a lot of tourists going for a hike. So when we felt the need to stretch our legs, the gorge was the obvious choice!

The scenery has the wild beauty that is very common in our region and attracts so many visitors every year! Even I can't get enough of it even though I am living here for almost a decade!

The one thing that we took lightly was the heat of the day. Our camping spot was under the shadow of trees so we haven't really felt it till then. And the gorge although it looked cool from the outside, it turned out to be a huge stone oven :)

Can you spot the hikers at the picture above? When I saw them and I realized the absolute lack of trees for the following part of the route, I instantly decided that it was time to catch our breath at the shadow of a rock and go to the sea for a swim :)

It wasn't much of a hike but it was definitely a nice walk!

I will concede the first photo did not make me think a great place for a walk, but boy was a wrong, yes Rugged scenery but amazingly beautiful
I loved seeing your walk here

Thanks for joining Wednesday Walk :), I truly enjoy exploring the world virtually each Wednesday seeing walks from all around the globe and feeling I am there and experiencing it all myself, such as I did in your post just now :)

The first word that comes on my mind looking at your first picture was adventure. Like, it's perfect to walk around the area and take pictures. I think it was not very sunny around that time.

It was definitely a nice walk @fotostef. You've just toured me in your great place. Love it!

Yep, exactly that. Dry and hot.
We have those places around here too. We like to walk around and discover. But during summer days. It can be dangerous. Always count for the heat. Glad it wasn’t a long hike.
You did capture some stunning photographs 😎 thanks for sharing @fotostef

So glad and I just went back to look at those photos again and I see so much.

So many footsteps that have worn the pathway ahead of you guys and the stories that unfolded along those pathways.

So many amazing wonderful little creatures in their own universes that all of the rocks are hiding and treasure of all kinds abound there only to be found when the rain washes away the dust and dirt.

I could spend hours, nay months just walking around there with my head swizing back and forth, round and round, up and down... my eyes trying to penetrate every crevice and under every rock like a metal detector...😃
