Snow on the mountain tops
The temperature is usually above zero degrees
when it snows on this part of Crete, therefore the snow is gone within the same
day as it falls. This picture is from approx. 500 meter above sea level.
On the road from Sitia to Atherinolakkos, which
reaches heights of 600 meters above sea level, we sometimes encounters snow
during the winter - and the temperature can drop to below freezing.
The mountain in the backgound with the snow is
1100 meters above sea level.
