And twice now, I've gone to Cheung Chau to hike. The first time around was one warm and humid summer's day some years back with Roz's Group (see here and here for photo-essays of that day's outing). The more recent time was on a fall day with two hiking buddies -- and I have to say that it really was more enjoyable the second time around, not least because the weather was -- and companions were -- more pleasant and we covered more ground by venturing to the northern as well as southern sections of the dumbbell shaped island...
Not the usual hike sight encountered early on!
One of many unusual shaped rocks encountered
that day out on Cheung Chau
We followed the path down to the beach
...even though we knew it meant that we would
then have to follow several other steps up later on!
We'd occasionally pause and look back at sights
like this on the climb back up
Looking eastwards yielded sights like this one
that included the main built up sections of the island
On one of Cheung Chau's northern-most hills is
this structure that resembles a beached UFO to my mind!
Look back at the fifth photo from the top
to get a sense of how far we had come from there...
To be continued -- with photos of central and southern Cheung Chau to come in the next photo-essay! :)
