The Mountains

Beijing is in the north of China, and while it is a sprawling metropolis covering thousands of acres, it is surrounded to the north by mountains. If you go over the first ridge of mountains you get The WALL. Eventually I will get out there, but for now, you get to see the temples on the tops of the mountains in the north. This is another view from my office because I was trapped inside yet again yesterday. I am told the building I am in looks out on the Yanshan Mountains so I have to assume that when I look out that is what I am seeing. Apparently you can go and hike those hills and explore those sites, hopefully someday soon I will get to do some trekking and see a bit more.
