Fragrant Hills Park (Xiangshan Park)

Hiking in China is a little different than in the US, instead of trails that zig zag up the mountain they have built stairs that go all the way to the top. I am not sure if the pictures will convey exactly how steep these steps are.

Sky Meadows Hike

We went hiking at Sky Meadows State Park in Virginia.

Here are the Google Earth links, I forgot to switch off the GPS when I went into the gift shop which explains the Long straight line on top right. I was able to edit it out of the Google Map, but I don’t know how to do it on Google Earth yet.
