Photo of the Week – The Great Wall, China

Great Wall of China - Autumn

Twist and Turn – the Great Wall, China

November is quickly coming to an end – and so the cold winter is beginning.  However I have fond memories of my fall in 2007 spent in China traveling with my father.  We explored this section of the Jinshanling Wall.  It undulates through the steep mountaintops, and it is approximately 8 miles from Jinshaling to Simatai via the Great Wall.  It will take anywhere from 4 to 7 hours to complete it depending on your fitness, and your knees! The two sections of the wall connect and there is a woman at that connection taking tickets to move on to the next section – if you don’t have a ticket, then you can ‘tpass through to Simatai.

We had a beautiful day to hike, and for photography.  View my photography of the Great Wall.
