(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)
The first glimpse of the Great Wall that I saw was at Juyongguan Pass north of Beijing. In 1987, when this photo was taken, not much was left of the wall except the gate upon which I was standing when I took this picture of the pass through the mountains. Much of the wall in this area has been reconstructed since then.
The picture above was scanned from a slide.
