Crete off the beaten track

In November we went for a week to the island of Crete. The plan was to do some serious hiking in the mountains. Unfortunately November is not the month with the most stable weather and it was mostly rainy. Still i think we managed to make some nice walks, see some beautifull sights and get some nice shots.
