Yang-Ming Shan 陽明山 ~ Lengshuikeng (冷水坑) to Qingtiangang (擎天崗)

A glorious day yesterday, and this was the view of Yang-Ming-Shan Mountains from St. John’s University (SJU) ~ looked so inviting ~ so go there we must!

And so happened that today was the day that the SJU student fellowship organized a big morning walk – and invited the church members to come too, at least partly so that cars were available to save hours of time on buses ~ and Rev. Lennon Chang came to send us on our way and pray for us all….

And off we went – collecting a few more people including 2 lovely children on the way – to Lengshuikeng (冷水坑), on the east side of Qixingshan (七星山), which meant a long winding road all around the mountains, ah, but well worth it!

After plenty of fun and games, we set off with our national park guide – along to Qingtiangang (擎天崗), past the milk lake, over the suspension bridge, past the pillbox defence towers, by millions of caterpillars and flowers.  And so to the lava terraces and the grazing pastures full of cows, who seem well used to people walking up to them and posing for photos right beside them – including university students celebrating their graduation who were up there all kitted out in their gowns and mortar boards for DIY photos with selfie sticks, plus brides and grooms posing for their wedding photos.  And all the while the cows, were, well just munching away… like cows do.

Such a beautiful day ~ and so many people everywhere enjoying the cool breezes and mountain views, and of course the hot springs….

Ah yes, I ♥ Yang-Ming Shan!
