Hiking photos - Big Black Mountain, 2009/12/12

The Big Black Mountain hike is a scenic countryside walk that starts to the north of Big Black Mountain and finishes at an ancient walled village close by to the Huanghuacheng Great Wall. On this visit we had a short climb on a different section of Great Wall, and stopped by Huanghuacheng for a nice lunch after visiting the Walled Village.
