As the end of 2017 draws nearer, I will take a moment to do a photo rewind starting with this week’s topic of Ascend. Hope you like it.
This was one of the most memorable moment in 2017 – riding the world’s longest passenger cable car (or so it claims) up to Tianmen Mountain in Hunan, China. The ride took around 30 minutes and by the time I got off, I was so relieved because I no longer have to hold in my vomit.
One day, after having tea with my grandma, I decided to ascend these stairs to the park for some exercise. I really needed it and I was completely out of breath by the time I arrived at the top.
This was the last leg of one of my favorite trails – The Valley of Five Lakes. I hiked this trail during my road trip to Canada back in May. It was so beautiful. We, my aunt and I, used an alternative path to find our way back to the parking lot. As we were about a mile from the parking lot, we encountered this steep hill. I didn’t want to go up. It was simply too steep, so steep that it felt like I might roll backwards if I hiked this but I didn’t. Eventually, one step at a time, I ascended this difficult hill.
Finally, hiking has its rewards. This was the view of the city three hours later after ascending a rocky and slippery not clearly marked trail.
