Down The Other Side 2

    We continue down the mountain...

Deputy Director Li is standing in front of one of the chairs being carried up the back of the mountain. (The front side is too steep and narrow for the chair-carriers.) The porters are so thin; I don't know where they get enough energy for this tough job.

A beautiful view of Five Bend from two-thirds of the way down the back side.

We finally reached the bottom. It was a very easy climb down.

Aren't these hills at Five Bend lovely?

"Please don't hurt the green lives." The equivalent America sign would say "Keep off the grass."
