Who brings their binoculars on a mountain overlooking Taipei and then forgets to use them??
Me. *Double face-palm*
Did you know that I have only ever used them 2 times? And not because I do not bring them. No. My brain, sometimes…
Well, anyway, I went on my first hike in Taiwan yesterday, and the view was spectacular! We took a short trip on the MRT (subway) to the Elephant Mountain Station and then began the ascent. It takes only about 25 minutes to climb, but it is all stairs, all the way. We were all sweating everywhere by the time we got to the top.
But once we did, there were some giant boulders we could climb up on and I was blown away by how beautiful it was. We left just before sundown, so the sky was amazing. We also had a perfect view of Taipei 101, the tallest building in Taiwan, and once the tallest in the world, with 101 floors.
Here is the trip in pictures:
