We went hiking on the first day of 2017 to take advantage of the gorgeous weather. The Ninety-Nine Peaks Forest Trail [九九峰森林步道] is a 1,930 meter long trail in Nantou County’s Caotun Township [草屯鎮]. We brought the kids here because we figured they were getting tired of the trail we frequent in Jhongsing Village. Furthermore, being a holiday weekend, most of the popular trails in Nantou County were probably going to be packed. We only encountered a couple dozen people on the trail. Amazingly, both kids made it through the whole trail without asking to be carried!
Here’s a small collection of photographs of our hike:
I didn’t do much blogging in 2016 and I don’t imagine I will do a tremendous amount of blogging in 2017 either. During the final quarter of 2016 I began taking professional development classes to renew my expired Michigan teaching certificate and this year I will begin taking online graduate courses to earn a Master’s degree in TESOL.
Happy New Year!
