This building was abandoned after the 921 Earthquake and hasn’t been torn down since.

I followed a portion of the Nantou Bike Way [南投縣自行車道], which split several times over the course of my ride. A couple portions were very nicely paved and had a handful of solar powered street lamps.
Like the building from the earlier photo, this one has seen its better days:
The path went by some of Nantou County’s beautiful farmland:

A tobacco farm in Nanpu:
Around this area I decided to take a moment to reapply sunscreen and photograph insects:
I’m pretty sure it’s a Blue Percher [Diplacodes trivialis]

Next time I’ll have to try out some of the paths going in other directions.
