Hiking photos - Auspicious Village, 2010/02/07
Our Auspicious Village hike is a good countryside walk through farmland, hills, and valleys. Along the way we pass three small villages, and it's always interesting to get a look at the lifestyle of people in the countryside. We walked on fresh snow, had a peek at a travelling market, and finished up with a meal of dumplings at a restaurant at the foot of the Huanghuacheng Great Wall.
As usual, we took a lot of photos! For this set, we've concentrated on village life, instead of the hiking.
