Here are the pictures I took at the Great Wall on Sunday. It was mid-day and the light was extremely harsh, so I’m hoping to get back out there at the end of the day Friday for some shots in better light.
These pictures are all at Badaling, the first place you can visit the wall on the way out of Beijing. It’s a good workout to walk up and down all the steep steps. Here’s a tip: get some bottled water before you head up the hill! I was pretty dehydrated by the time I got back down to the shops that sold soft drinks.
I’d like to also check out another location next time — there’s another spot a few miles further up the road that looked less-traveled when we drove past it. Maybe Friday, we’ll see. Between now and then, it’s all work this week.
