    Vegetable beds are located on a hillside between the fruit trees.So compact, as  houses.

      Between the olive trees the ground is broken open groove-shaped. The grooves should prevent, that the rare rainwater flows immediately downhill.

        mountain serpentine is very difficult! ... and very beatiful!
        Cool that you cycled up on it  ... I certainly would not have been able to ... I would have velo-walked :))) ... and through some day I would be on finish :))))

          If you are able to cross-country skiing, you are also able to ride uphill the mountains by turning a crank!!
          You only have to do it :-))

            In the summer I rode across small hills ... if the raise is long and not strong - then it is almost not noticeable ... but if steep as one of your photos with towers - I rode only a few tens of meters :)))) (well, that the raise fast came to an end:)))

              A good way to exercise uphill riding is by the control your pulse-frequency. Do you have a pulse-clock?
              You have to limit your power, so that your pulse frequency remains in the aerobic range. You will upwards be able to ride for lasting!  :-)))

    You are going among the clouds, above the clouds! What a wonderful winding road!
    • Manfred Premium user Germany (Private)

      Yes, it is an elated feeling to cycle over the clouds or to roll beside a cloud. :-)
      However, cycling in the clouds is so funny not. It feels chilly, humid and you see nothing but white fog. :-(

        :-)  Yes, I understand. But this is a changing of impressions!

    The road and the scenery are fascinating.
    There are no people, no cars, a complete  merge with nature.
