Hopefully, looking at some hiking photos will help get rid of some of that frustration. And while I'm at it, here's also cobbling together a photo-essay of a hike through territory so familiar -- namely, the trail leading up Mount Parker Road from King's Road over to Tai Tam Road by way of the Tai Tam Reservoirs -- that I felt comfortable being out on my own but with enough exploratory detours to make the outing feel like I wasn't entirely repeating myself along with enough pretty much always interesting sights to make for a satisfying excursion into the Hong Kong countryside... :b
See the pavilion that's half obscured by foliage
to the left of the picture?
Here's what it looks like up close :b
From the pavilion, one can see the section of
Mount Parker Road that I often jokingly refer to
In its vicinity, I also found a more rugged route
to the pavilion than the one I had taken!
Although there was some precipitation in the air,
I happily didn't get rained on that afternoon :)
The threat of rain undoubtedly played a part in there being
fewer people out in Tai Tam Country Park than usual that day
Amidst all this, I think the reservoirs' water levels
may well have been at the lowest that I've seen to date!
When you catch sight of the dam atop which is a section
of Tai Tam Road, then you know that you're near hike's end... :)
