Snaking Across the Mountains



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

The picture above was scanned from a slide made in 1990. I was on the Great Wall and had hiked to a watch tower at the top of a pass from which I could see the wall snaking across the mountains for as far as the eye could see. It would have been fun to go further along the wall, but I had to head back down to the gate from which I started.

How nice was that to visit the Great Wall...some day maybe. I love your photo, to me it was very moody looking..maybe a feeling for all the lives given to create that wall!
