So here's going back in time to a hot and super humid summer's day that saw me sweating buckets while getting quite the stair master-style workout in Tai Tam Country Park and putting up a photo-essay to remind me that, in addition to vistas involving multiple steps leading up Siu Ma Shan and Mount Butler, I also did come across other interesting sights while enjoying hiking that day with a couple of friends in tow... :)
Among the more intriguing "finds" of that day's hike was what
appeared to be a private shrine in a corner of the country park...
Actually more unexpected was the sight of water bubbling up from cracks
in the rocks by the section of the Wilson Trail leading up Siu Ma Shan!
View from green Siu Ma Shan of the city down below
and across Victoria Harbour :)
The view to the south is so much greener and idyllic...
Looking eastwards from the summit of Mount Butler
over across to Mount Parker and beyond
A tree with unexpectedly bare branches caught my eye
on our way down Mount Parker Road
Damselfly delicatedly balanced on a tree's bare branch
I hope it didn't suffer the fate of this dragonfly in the hands of this
