A couple days before our wedding we brought my family and Cathy’s nephew up to Cingjing Farm [清境農場] for some great food and mountain scenery. The winding road going up still had a few sections of road missing from the previous typhoon [four months ago]. Luckily there were no delays as there was very little traffic going up or down from our destination because it was a weekday.
Our first stop after such a long drive was Yunwu [清境雲舞樓渡假花園] for some excellent Yunnan cuisine, no need for much description, I’ll let the pictures do the talking…
First on the menu: Pepper Herb Chicken [椒麻雞]:
After a very satisfying lunch we headed to the Evergreen Grassland [青青草原] for a brief stroll and to see the sheep. Since it’s winter now, the grass is yellow, but in warmer months it blankets the area in a sea of green.
I filled a paper bag with food from the vending machine and began to feed the sheep. Quickly about half a dozen sheep surrounded me. Towards the end of the bag one bold sheep snatched the bag out of my hand and ate the paper bag and any remaining food that was inside of it.
My brother takes a moment to enjoy the view:
I really like this picture of Cathy’s nephew Henry [saved by using the onboard flash as fill light]:
Finally, I’ll wrap things up with a hastily shot panorama that turned out better than the other two I made [that I spent much more time shooting]:
View the large.
