Hiking at DaKeng - October 2009
Harvest Moon holiday offered an opportunity to do a little hiking in the area. We ventured to DaKeng, in the eastern suburbs of Taichung, with high hopes of an enjoyable, repeatable hike. Instead, we were met with two hours of caveman ladders, which did not mix well with our footwear, nor the high heat and humidity. Scratch DaKeng off the list...

Lots of typhoon and quake driven landslides had wiped out the trail and forced detours.
