A ride on the mountain

This is the teleferique of the Parnitha mountain. It lifts people to the Regency Casino (former Mont Parnes Hotel, alt. 1055m). It is brand new. The previous lift that was there for over 40 years was dismantled. Parnitha is the tallest mountain in Athens and is a protected forest and wild life area.
See the area in Wikimapia

I am glad to see a photo taken very close the area I live! It should have been taken on Saturday, because I see no clouds around!

Wow! I still can recall those elementary school excursions to Parnitha National Reserve and the ride in the cable car. That was sixteen years ago...

Nice to see a mountain (if you call that a MOUNTAIN! ;) ) without snow on it!

Think Spring is on it's way over there?
