Hiking photos - Huangyaguan Great Wall, 2009/11/18

Huangyaguan Great Wall is located near the border of Tianjin and Beijing's Pinggu District, and is about as far away from the city as you can get on a day trip. As well as travelling a long way from the city, we visited on a Wednesday - this meant there were not many people about, and with the clear (but cold!) weather this was a very nice day out. (We didn't take the GPS with us, so no statistics for this one, sorry!)
