Stomping on old hiking grounds that apparently took a beating from the typhoons

Overlooking Dahu Park (大湖公園) and the best outdoor 50m pool ever

Zigzagged all the way down and then back up again

Taking a rest at the East Peak of Huangdidian (皇帝殿東峰) — 593m above sea level

Making our way over to the West Peak which was unfortunately interrupted by rain

Plan B: this path from the ridge back down to the parking lot for safety reasons

Saturday October 3rd, 2015

Took eight Taipei Hikers out on a 10KM+ hike in my neighborhood (same route as last weekend)

Bamboo forest (sort of)

A wonderful lookout point and taking a much needed rest from the heat of the day (34°)

Taipei 101 in the far, far distance as seen from the Yuanjue Temple

Thursday October 1st, 2015

A two-hour hike out back only to find more trees down from typhoon Dujuan

Trees are uprooted all over the trails

This path is very well used year round and should be repaired (I hope)

My community in the distance
