Hiking photos - New Years Day Longyunshan hike, 2011/01/01

We enjoyed excellent weather for our first outing of 2011, the Longyunshan ‘Dragon Cloud’ Mountain hike.

After climbing up to the Ghost House and making a loop of the reservoir at the top, we followed the river upstream until we found a good spot for crossing over on the ice.

We walked up the riverside, looking for a place where the ice was frozen thick enough to walk over.
