Camouflaged grasshopper. Into the forest. Camouflaged beetle. Mulberries were perfectly ripe. ‘Three-million-year-old sedimentary rocks’, according to the nearby signage. Approaching the first of the chain-assisted climbs. Looking down the second of the chain-assisted climbs. Hiking towards an abandoned village. An abandoned sofa in the abandoned village. Only the chickens were home. We hiked higher up into the mountains. A marker with the name of this section of the ancient road (Yuhe 玉河). Checking out the horse hoofprints. We’d finish in the village below, but not before hiking up to a nearby peak. The firebreak road. The clouds in the distance got a little thundery before the hike was over. We stopped for a rest before hiking down to the end.
