The Four Beasts Mountain Public Forest [四獸山市民森林] was a much needed break from watching the Pistons lose their fourth-straight.
On Sunday morning there were people of all ages on this magnificently maintained trail. Along the way the path has many maps and informative signs in Chinese and English.
We took the Tiger Mountain [虎山] path, the other three beasts are: Elephant Mountain [象山], Lion Mountain [獅山], and Panther Mountain [豹山].
Pictured below, Tiger Mountain:
To get to the trail, just take the Blue Line to Houshanpi Station, walk towards Zhongpo South Road and Fude Street, and take either Fude Street Lane 221 or 251. It was maybe 15-20 minutes from the MRT including a stop at Family Mart for supplies.
Like most of my pictures, this one was taken in a hurry, I don’t like how the focus is on the flower rather than the moth [or butterfly, who knows?], Cathy contends that it is still an interesting picture… hmmmm.
The trail offers views of the city, this is the only picture that came out halfway decent:
Looks like rain… maybe next time I should check the forecast before I go out.
I think I have mentioned in a couple of recent posts that I am interested in buying a new digital camera. I haven’t really researched anything, but I know I don’t ever want to get as close as I was to the beast below ever again.
A much friendlier looking critter:
We were rained on for the final leg of our journey, nothing serious, just an on-again, off-again drizzle for lasting 15 minutes or so.
