The Temple is only halfway up this mountain. I was with a couple of friends of mine with their children who got too tired to walk all the way to the top.

The city of Guantou in the background. I am barely one third the way up the mountain.

I am always amazed at the sculpture work on many of the building columns here in China.

This is Erica, almost six years old. One of the reasons we couldn't go all the way to the top.
I can tell you, she is a trooper. Stuck with me as much as she could.

OMG! Attack of the monster mushrooms!
Kidding. Just a children's play area.

See how far up we would still have had to go to reach the top?
We are only halfway up the mountain side.
