With my friend the great naturalist, David Koutsogiannopoulos, we ascended to Karpenisi in Central Greece's mountainous backbone. Again treated wonderfully by the teachers of the Center for Environmental Education here. I conducted an educational seminar for the teachers and we sampled for fishes in the Karpenisiotis river: at Gavros and Dipotama. We visited the village of Tornos and were led by Panayotis Palaios who has done a magnificent job at fixing up the trail through the hamlet and on to the gorge of Tornos. Wonderful waters and life everywhere. Thanks to Panos, Manolis and all the team at Karpenisi - we'll be back for wild trout studies soon!
The following photos are all David's.
