Chestnut Orchard Camping photos, Aug. 29-30

Campers Chuck and Han Ye sent us a great set of pictures from our camping trip on the 29th and 30th of August. We camped out in a chestnut orchard in the Shentangyu Valley, did a couple of easy hikes, and enjoyed the scenery, hiking, and some good country-style Chinese food.
