Statuary at Panther Mountain, Four Beasts Mountains, Taipei City
Just two weeks back from England, and I’ve been hiking five days a week (before class, all-day at the weekends) trying to get these darned books completed. Nearly there, with just eight hikes to go.
Wind Moving Boulder (since destroyed by a typhoon) at Xiaowulai, Taoyuan City
The weather didn’t cooperate the two weekends I was back for organising a group hike, but I’ve saved four great hikes for definite group outings in February and March, so hope some of you can make them! I’m off to the airport in, er, two hours to fly to Bangkok en route to the mystical kingdom of Bhutan (yeeeeh!) for a couple of weeks , but will be back mid February, ready for at least four more hikes in Taiwan.
