Not only once but 2 times.....up on the tippy top of the hard side too (that one I will never ever see)
*You should be able to click the pics for a closer view.
Panoramic Views of the Wall
Locks along the wall, not very many left.
My view up the steps....OMG
All I can say is amazing! This is one huge masterpiece & we are thrilled to have been given the opportunity to visit & walk along this Great Wall.
I am totally exhausted and we still have tomorrow to tour the Summer Palace & Silk Factory. My legs are like jello and were already tired before today.
*Tip of the day: If you have the chance to climb the Wall, try and do this first before any other sightseeing.
There are 2 sides of the Great Wall, they call them the hard and the easy path. Today Gordon decided and proceeded to climb the hard side (I tried but there was no way-those steps are up to my knees). I took the easy side (Ha! easy my ass).
Here are 2 more pictures we receive today from "Nan", she was at Mia's SWI 3/12-27 of 2011 an took these. How lucky am I, so many people have shared pictures of our daughter with us that we would have never seen if not for RQ and FB friends :) Love you all.
*Hope they don't cut her hair before we meet her on Monday. Those are quite the pants aren't they ? :)
