Consequently, when I was considering what would be a nice trail to introduce three more friends to on one of those days when it was still too hot to go for something more difficult but already cool enough to be more ambitious in terms of what we felt we would be up to, I opted for what's officially rated as a three star hike in terms of difficulty but actually is pretty doable when torrential rains make it so that many of the streams that one finds along it are filled to overflowing! ;b
A sign that's becoming increasingly familiar in the wake of
See how hilly (much of) Hong Kong is!
One of the many streams we passed by along the trail
On days when they're not dangerously overflowing,
the streams can be welcome places to rest a bit by
and even cool one's tootsies in ;)
Spot the camouflaged grasshopper!
A sign points to an alternative way to Lead Mine Pass
which I've yet to try going along
Some of the biggest fungi I've seen growing out in the wild!
Seeing so many monkeys along the trail sometimes
caused my hands to shake and my photos to be blurrier
than I wished would have been the case... ;S
