Never did make it to Wuzhishan but made it to the base of Yangmingshan

The trail was thin and slippery in parts with clouds rushing through the trees

The group I took out (Israeli, Canadian, American, German and two Taiwanese)

This was where the trail pulled us out and we had another hour long walk before we found a bus stop

One of my favorite ridge hikes in New Taipei City — Huangdidian (皇帝殿)

Lots of ropes and ladders along the trail with a gazillion steps to get up and down on either end

30° with 0% chance of rain made it a perfect day for this hike
