Got to wander up the Athenian Acropolis, where the ruined temple Parthenon can be found. It was a bright clean morning, the perfect crispiness for this setting.
The views that you can see at the top are indescribable. You’re surrounded by ruins from 400 something BC with a vast view below you, every which way, of the endless city Athens.
Breathtaking is an understatement.

We swung by Delphi the other weekend, on a trip down to Athens.
The site is believed to have been sought by Zeus when he was searching for the center of Gaia (Earth).
The guy Zeus sent two eagles flying from both east and west and they crossed right over this naval… this belly button of a location.
Years later, and now a non-fiction setting, we roam this belly.

I hiked Mount Olympus- Greece’s first national park, the tallest mountain in Greece, and also home to the twelve Greek gods led by Zeus.
The hike itself wasn’t exactly exciting, or adventurous, or filled with a ton of happenings— it was a hike. And it was long- two days long.
But there was a deepness to it. I couldn’t put a handle on exactly what it was, and I’m not sure if I still do…
Was it the feeling of waking up on the other side of the sky, watching the sun rise OVER the clouds?
Or the absolute quietness and stillness at the height of our climb? Just literally sitting on top of the tallest mountain in Greece, with not even a whisper to disturb it……?
Or maybe it was the pure simpleness of putting one foot in front of the other, eventually to cover 9,570 feet.
I’m not sure what it was… but it was there- the depth, that meaning.
If you’re looking for it, I think you can find it at the top.

Spent the weekend doing a two day hike up Mount Olympus… and Marcus did us the glorious favor of waking us up early to see the sunrise… OVER the clouds.
Wish I could wake up to it every morning.
