Promise and Landscapes You Like (This week's Photo Hunt themes)
Since moving to Hong Kong, Sundays have held a special place in my heart. This is because Sundays are regularly reserved for hiking outings. And as such, they hold the promise of adventure and my getting to be out in -- and getting to view -- landscapes that I like. (How's this for combining Sandi's and Gattina's Photo Hunt themes not only in a single blog entry but a single sentence?! :b)
For those interested in details: the top-most landscape photo is of the summit of Tai Mo Shan, Hong Kong's highest mountain (which, yes, I'm happy to say that I've been up on). The two other photos at the top of this blog post were taken on Lantau, Hong Kong's largest -- but by no means most densely populated -- island.
To my mind, Lantau is one of those sections of Hong Kong that rank high in terms of hiking potential and promise. I've already been on some really enjoyable hikes (including along the Nei Lak Shan and South Lantau Country Trails as well as sections of the Lantau Trail) on that island but there still are many trails that I've yet to go on -- and that I look forward to doing so before too long. :)
