After I got back home later that day, I found that my pedometer had recorded my having taken over 20,000 steps! Also pleasing to me was that along with the workout, I had managed to see some cool and/or interesting sights along the hike; and this even though the afternoon was far from being as high visibility as other ones spent out hiking in Hong Kong have been...
Pok Fu Lam Country Park has an entrance
What this means is that just meters away from
the touristy shopping mall can be found beautiful
wild flowers and other wonders of nature!
Look closely about you when out hiking in Hong Kong and you're
likely to spot critters like this butterfly/moth around too!
I have to say that I've yet to see anyone riding
a horse on a country path in Hong Kong!
Our destination that afternoon wasn't Aberdeen but we did
get to within sight of that southern Hong Kong Island town
It never ceases to amuse me how stick insects don't seem
to realize that they're pretty easy to spot when strolling along
-- or just plain hanging (out) on -- a metal railing ;b
Something else I've definitely noticed is how caterpillars
seem partial to using railings as their version of highways! ;)
Hike's end close to the Old Wan Chai Post Office building
which now is home to an environmental resource center :)
