  • Hiking along Tiger Leaping Gor Hiking along Tiger Leaping Gorge in Yunnan

    • From: Lux
    • Description:

      People who love the outdoors hiking all know that the Tiger Leaping Gorge is famous for its risk. On the canyon’s sides, mountains are standing high.

      Tiger Leaping Gorge is a canyon on the Yangtze Riverupper stream---the Golden Sands River, located 60km north of Lijiang, Yunnan. It is about 15km long. The canyon is located between Jade Dragon Snow Mountain and Haba Snow Mountain with a series of rapids and steep 2000m cliffs.’s

      It has Yulong to east with snow capped throughout the year. Silver Peaks insert to the sky with absurd rocks on the mountainside. Old vines coil and wind here. 

      So, for I who like the outdoors, it is sure a spots that could not to be missed, even it was raining. When coming to Yunnan in the rainy season, you should prepare for the rainy weather. 

       How can the long and slim gorge withstand the raging water in the river? 

      Turbulent Jinsha River runs through the Shigu town--- the first Yangtze River bay, and makes a sudden U-turn northward from the cracks between the Haba Snow Mountain and Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, and forming of the world's most spectacular Grand Canyon.

      The narrowest part of the canyon is the famous Tiger Leaping Gorge. It is said that a tiger stepping on the huge rock in the river can skip the Jinsha River.

      Most tourists who come to Tiger Leaping Gorge will visit the Upper Tiger Leaping Part, so, for avoiding the crowded tourists we chose to start our hiking from the middle part of the gorge.

      The hiking of middle gorge is from the Zhang Laoshi Lodge. Before we started hiking, the old women in the lodge asked us 10 CNY each one as passing fare, as the path was constructed by her family. 

      Just hiking half way, there is another old woman stopped us to ask for another 5 yuan for the passing fare. She said started from here, the way was built by her family. 

      After the hiking of the middle gorge, looking back to see the way we passed, it was seemed no as hard as imagine. 

      When passing the upper gorge, we saw lots of tourists, so we did not climb down to the bottom of the gorge; instead we looked down and find the scenery more momentum.

  • Abandoned Railroad Remnants On Abandoned Railroad Remnants On The Lehigh Trail In Palm Coast Florida

    • From: trailviewmount
    • Description:

      These railroad remnants were part of the Lehigh Railroad Spur built in 1952 to carry product from the Lehigh Portland Cement Company to market. The eastern end of the Lehigh Greenway Rail Trail begins in what was the switchyard for the cement plant, which was busy enough for the Florida East Coast Railroad to maintain a switch engine on the premises. Due to labor disputes and economic uncertainty the plant and the railroad closed in 1965. The Lehigh Trail is a fantastic place to bicycle and enjoy.

      The Lehigh Trail in Palm Coast Florida runs along a canal between Belle Terre Parkway and Colbert Lane that is now an abandoned railroad corridor. This trail also is connected by sidewalks and paths that tie into the St. Joe Walkway/Linear Trail. As a non-local finding the paths and trails in Palm Coast can be extremely confusing.  For more photos and info on Florida paved trails for bicycling visit my website: http://www.trailviewmount.com
