Hike photos – Rolling Hills, 2012/12/16
The Rolling Hills hike is a good one to do on a snowy day because it’s a long walk that's mostly flat, and it's quite easy as well!
We followed old hill trails between three different villages, walking through pine woods, cornfields, and up and over the rolling hills.
When there’s snow on the ground we often see a lot of small footprints – sometimes that’s the only way you’d know that Beijing does have some wildlife!
We followed a trail beside cornfields, heading for the hills.
Along the way we spotted this cold looking donkey, penned up to keep out of trouble.

Some footprints in the snow – the big prints look like those of goats; the smaller prints are probably those of a bird.
More bird prints.
In summer, these fields are full of green cornstalks.
We followed the trails beside the cornfields, heading for a high point.
