Dancing on a Mountaintop

If someone had ever said to me that I'd be showing some Heyrobics dance moves to a hiking group on a mountaintop north of Beijing as the polluted air creates haze in the distance....Oh, who am I kidding?

I like to dance. If I can't dance on tabletops, I'll dance on mountaintops. And hiking has given me a way to fall in love with China all over again week after week. As the frustrations and annoyances mount, I can go to places like this and think, maybe I should just stop my whining and be happy for now.

Here's a bit of this week's hiking adventure.
Wish I could take credit for this arty shot.
We didn't do any rock climbing, but we did climb. And climb.
It really was this beautiful.
I start to show my friends the dance moves.
There are some people who think I might bound off the mountain.
Still dancing.
The jumping jacks part really made people think I was going to go off the edge.
After the dance party, we start to head back. It's still beautiful.
We also met these little fellows, but no big bad wolf.
Hello from a square grotto.
The long walk back.
