Descending to Agia Anna Foto: Cutsinger

Here we began our descent along a very precipitous, very rocky trail, where every step had to be taken with the utmost care to avoid slipping or stumbling—which, thankfully, I managed to do only once! It was quite a demanding hour or so, punctuated by three or four stops to rest and drink in some of the breathtaking scenery. I must say I had never before become so weary walking downhill.

Pilgrims: James S. Cutsinger, Professor of Theology and Religious Thought at the University of South Carolina and his son.
