Badaling



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

Badaling is the pass nearest Beijing with a gate in the Great Wall. Climbing up the wall on one side of the pass gives a great view of the Wall climbing the other side of the pass and then snaking along the ridge tops.

The picture above was scanned from a slide.

Looking at the picture, it is not easy to walk to the other end.

Even though scanned from a slide, I could still click on it. I love the way you got so much of the windy wall into that one shot.
