Summer Vacation | China Trip 2015 Day 7 | Wuyi Rafting & Hiking Heaven-Traveling Peak

China Travel

Day 7 of our China adventure kept us in the Wuyi mountains of Fujian province, this time starting off with some rafting in the morning before things got too hot and then MORE hiking after lunch! We braved “Heaven-Traveling Peak” which is touted as the No. 1 scenic spot in Wuyi, beautiful view – way too many steps to climb!

Our “captain” pulled over and gave us some shore time to explore a little outcropping – but I think it was more for them to have a smoke break, lol!

Miles got to stand up on the front of the boat for a photo with the famous mountain peak in the background.

Reminded us of Horseshoe Bend in the American West! It’s almost like the Colorado River… almost…

About to make that trek up those stairs behind us to the green spot on the veeeery top!

Those tiny stairs so far away are what we just climbed up, the little pavilion is where we took the first set of pictures from before these.

When we were done we swung by “A Thread of Sky” a super narrow canyon…

Personal | Daytrip to the Great Smoky Mountains with Jing & Ping
I've been pretty good about pumping out the wedding-related posts, and even recently doing a quick write-up of a new restaurant in Downtown Altanta. What I have not done recently, is shared any personal photos of just our normal life, which mostly revolves around Miles of course. Well, most days for us are really not that exciting with a schedule of waking up, taking Miles to the park and/or museum, while either Betty works on her dissertation or I edit wedding photos/videos. A couple of weeks ago when it was still relatively chilly out, we headed up to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park to take Betty's PhD classmate and visiting profess ...
