Hiking at Qian Shan

I became a member of the International Club of Shenyang to meet new people, resources, and benefit from organized activities and meetings.  And this past Sunday, Tim and I took a day trip with several other couples/families.  We drove about 2 hours to Qian Shan, a national park near the city of Anshan, China.  The trip was planned for hiking and a picnic.  The weather was cool and we narrowly missed the rain, so a perfect day for rigorous hiking. The flyer for the day said:

Qian Shan is called “ A thousand lotus mountain as well and it is the branches of Changbai mountain. It is famous for its high hills, marvellous pine trees, and old temples. The main part of Qian Shan is made by 999 hills, which is why it is so called “ Qian Shan”. The highest peak is 708 meters with over 200 places of interests to visit.  


We can vouch for the gorgeous pine trees and amazing temples and buildings along the hills.  Here are some photos from our day. For a more detailed description of each photo, just click on it and read the caption.
