Hiking Season



The weather has cooled down and I am hoping to do more hikes.  I started on my first one last week.  A short one.  Along a trail that has plenty of shade.  Maybe when I’ve worked up my stamina, I can take on some that are a bit more challenging. 

What one usually associates with Hong Kong are tall buildings, shopping, crowds, but actually “…out of the total 1,108 square kilometres of land, about three quarters is countryside.” (Source)  Because Hong Kong is quite compact, one of the things I appreciate about living here is how easy it is to get to most hiking trails (and there are plenty of them!). 

Looking forward to the me time, looking forward to some active walking, looking forward to discovering little spots of beauty.

Weed-(1) Taken with my Samsung S6 during my hike last week – a little weed by the path, struck just so by the sunlight filtering in through the trees.

Yay for time for hikes. How cool that there is so much natural land in such a compact area.

You certainly did "catch the light" here"!

I like the captures of the Clip above the Post .... So sweet to see the smiling children. :)

There used to be retort people would make to someone who was annoying them: "go take a hike". Actually, in reality, a hike is a wonderful thing which makes me want to "rebrand" that old remark and put it in the positive comment section. Lovely capture of the light.

We are a couple weeks away from hiking weather! I can't wait! I need to breath in the earth and the sky! Have a great week!

How pretty. The lighting is just lovely here. - It's starting to be much cooler here now so talking "walks" will be on the agenda. I don't have time for hiking but I sure hope you enjoy your hikes.

I wish I could have experienced more of that part of HK. I know the countryside must be gorgeous!

I certainly wouldn't have associated Hong Kong with hiking - though there was a beautiful park not far from our hotel when I stayed there years ago. It was amazing how the sound of the city seemed to disappear once we entered the park. Have a wonderful week.

It is always interesting seeing what catches other people's eyes, your weed made for a lovely photo. I always say I am going to get out and go for walks more often but don't. I really should.

Wow! I have never looked at a weed so lovingly before! Great capture! Found you over at #littlethingsthursday ~Lowanda of Sunshine and Elephants
