I didn’t know we were to squeeze through a crack in the rock while we were hiking up the hills of WuYiShan, China.
The rocks seem to be slanted in one direction and between the rocks there is a narrow gap.
More to this, no light can reach the gap and we have to make our way up the gap in darkness.
The gap is called ” A Thread of the Sky”.
From this, you can imagine how narrow the gap is.
The second photo was taken from a distant after emerging from the gap.
Thick mist floating down from the mountain top!
I think I am contracting myself – the mist must have weight to pour down from the top of the mountain, but still, I do like to think that they are weightless and the moment timeless!
We have no joy up in the WuYiShan (mountain), China, as it has been raining almost continuously.
While strolling, we caught this riverside view: river in the background, straight line of trees (mostly bamboo) with thin girth standing at the river edge.
Their twisted form and light color was a perfect contrast to the straight bamboo and the river!
I can still vividly remember the very cold day when we took a ride on a bamboo raft along the Nine Bend river by the side of WuYi Mountain, China.
It was raining cats and dogs when we were on the raft. The rain was whipping on us and we were shivering all over.
We picked a bad time to be on the river – we didn’t have the heart at all to appreciate the scenery on both sides of the river.
All we wanted was the raft trip to be ended as soon as possible.
Gazing down below, we saw four rafts on the meandering river, an orange colored pavilion roof and steep mountains with trees on both sides.
The mist was still thick and was cascading down to the river.
It was a wet and cold day – a day to remember!
PS I have also posted on this blog my travels to WuYiShan which included this ride on the raft. Interested readers are welcome to peruse it.
