Climbing Mount Huangshan
This is our first day on Yellow Mountain. We met this couple on our bus ride to the mountain and spent the day hiking up the mountain with them. I think this picture was taken right after our "encounter" with some monkeys. Part of traveling in China is meeting people. We met this Chinese couple the first day and two gentlemen traveling from the Netherlands the next day. I don't know how we didn't end up with some pictures of them? It was a great time, there weren't as many people climbing the mountain because it was so cold. You can see the ice and snow. We were excited, especially since it has still been in the 60's here! The bottom picture is the hotel we stayed in at the city. It was a Ming dynasty replica and very clean and warm, with some awesome woodwork.
