When the sky looks like this, how can we stay indoors? Despite the 90+ degree heat and off the charts humidity, we decided to seize the rare day that has a blue sky and go mountain climbing. (OK, so it’s called a mountain, but really it’s just a big hill with concrete stairs.)

Hubs and Schäfer cross the YiLing Bridge to get to the trail. Schäfer is pointing to a boat on the Yangtze.

The Yantze aka Willie Wonka’s Chocolate River. The river is brown from the silt of the spring run off.

Once we were on the trail, Schäfer was free to run and hike and climb. In fact, he climbed up the entire mountain. There was no slowing him down.

At this point, we are still on the path to the top. Here you can see the bridge we walked over and the part of the trail we climbed thus far.

Orange season is inevitably approaching. The trees are laden with the soon-to-be-orange fruit. (Hubs: also on the way…Pomelo!)

Once at the top of the mountain, we soaked in the views of the city!

Hubs and Schäfer resting before the hike down the mountain. Once at the top of the mountain, we had to put Schäfer in the Ergo because he kept stopping to scratch his mosquito bites which caused more mosquito bites. As he put it, “Where’s the mosquito hive?”

The path continues on over a couple more ridges, but with the heat, humidity and unexpected army of mosquitoes, we decided to call it a day. After taking plenty of photos and singing a few songs, we hiked off into the sunset…back downhill to the no.27 bus for a ride back to the city.


A map of our path. Unfortunately, it doesn’t reflect our hike up and down the thousands of stairs!
