Undaunted, here's going ahead and putting up a second photo-essay of the hike that took two friends and I from Luk Wu Plateau down to Chek Keng one sunny and hot (but actually not too humid) day that I remember causing the sunburnt arms and back of the neck of one of my friends to turn a quite amazing pink by dinner time that evening! ;b
A rock pool that's tempting to jump into on a hot day
...until you realize it's really close to this scary drop!
One of the prettiest waterfall areas I've seen in Hong Kong
I've never quite figured out what the deer symbol on the
sign posts mean -- but part of me suspects it might mean one has
to be as sure-footed as a deer when going along this trail!
Upon catching sight of this crab, we figured we were
now near the waters of Chek Keng Hau
Chek Keng is largely abandoned but one resourceful villager
has set up a stall here that sells cold drinks and such
I love taking close up shots as well as
panoramic photos of Chek Keng Hau
And yes, I also do love the kaito ride back to "civilization"
by way of Wong Shek Pier -- and taking photos while on it :)
