Stumbled upon a troop of a dozen or so Formosan Rock Macaques [Macaca cyclopis] today. We followed a portion of the Songboling Trail, which spans from Ershui’s Fongbo Plaza [豐柏廣場] to Songboling’s Shoutian Temple [受天宮]. If you’re looking to see Formosan Rock Macaques outside of the zoo this is good place. I’ve heard that 6am-9am is ideal. Don’t carry any food on the trail, as the monkeys will snatch it from you.
Mingjian’s tilting electric tower. An extensive post was written about this 921 Earthquake memorial by MJ Klein last year.
