After Wednesday, the rain continued for a little while on Thursday (the 14th of September) morning. It was not going to get any warmer than 20 C (68 F), but the rest of the day was forecast as dry.
Still, we knew that the rocky and uneven paths leading up and down mountains would be slippery, and therefore dangerous. We wanted to walk nonetheless, and decided on one of the round tours described in a leaflet we had picked up at the hotel.
We ended up walking not one, but three such tours - a total of 15 km, and all of it beautiful and interesting. A short rest in our room followed, then a quick turn in the sauna before dinner and an early bedtime.
Here are the pictures we took that day:
