I realized that it’s a bit of an obscure reference, so some clarification:

Those are Epirus mountains, Dodoni or thereabouts. Dodoni was the oldest Oracle of Zeus (Dias) and, according to some sources, of earlier matriarchal deities before Zeus came to power, Gaia and/ or Dioni (same etymology as Dias).

So, those mountains are, in a sense, Zeus’ old digs, older than Olympus.

@groin That little bridge is so beautiful :slight_smile:

I’m afraid that they are just “cultivated”. :slightly_smiling_face:

They are impressive anyway.
It’s nice to have a forest like this with a really walkable path in it.
