Morning Hike in Tak'eng (Dakeng) 大坑の朝のハイキング
I met up with Micheal this morning for a short hike in Takeng. We had a leisurely walk for a couple of hours, starting out on a short but steep road leading to a temple dedicated to Kuanyin (Guanyin), the Buddhist goddess of mercy (and of breakfasting hikers, judging by all the people there at 9 in the morning). From there, we walked up the No. 6 Trail, checked the progress of a new leisure spot being developed that promises fantastic views of the city of T'aichung (Taijhong) 台中, then took a narrow mountain road back down to ground level, passing several traditional-type homes on the way. The weather was on the hazy side, but at least the temperature was cool. Next time we'll have to tackle one of the more challenging routes in the Takeng area.
