On the evening of a day of calm (especially compared to what's happened this past month, including much of yesterday), here's trying to relax by looking back and sharing images and recollections from a Lantau Island hike with a friend some time back, during which my biggest worries involved potentially running smack into giant spiders and being run over by mountain bikers illicitly going along a trail designated for hikers...
Yes, there still are parts of Hong Kong which is not only
countryside but where farming takes place :b
No, I was not kidding about the giant spider encounters... ;(
Even on a day without super high visibility, the view from
the hills down to Mui Wo is worth pausing to drink in :)
Spotted along the way -- yes, really!
And here's that other menace: one of those mountain bikers
who couldn't resist going along this hilly hiking trail :S
If truth be told, I can't blame them for also wanting to
spend time in, and check out, scenic areas like this
Yes, this really is in Hong Kong! :b
More specifically, this is the Lo Fu Tau Country Trail :)
