  • Yesterday warm wanted? If you woke up this morning, I was surprised. Both the cars and the road is pure white. It is very family, I've ready in spring. Here was a mountain.

  • This time bought a high ride on the saddle 2nd, from the loose, the first day to go to the Highlands, the next day to go to the saddle Plateau, the way to go to the heights, just take a different bus on the new island, check it out first, sit on the bus on the plateau, and I'm the only one, and the people who are going to come by to make sure you're on the plateau? I'm afraid I'm sitting on the wrong path, but there's no one going to take the saddle plateau at this time. The car was about the same as the high ground, and I sat down at the end of the holiday village, and the plan was to walk to the cows ' pool, to the way from natural trails to the good five. In the natural walk to the visitor center, the results are not changed, to the leisure village in the snow, can see this height higher than the Highland, the road most of the snow, Neuriu Chi saw, but the road to the good five Lang waterfall is sealed not to go, the last can only be abandoned to take the car road. The final departure from the saddle Plateau was so simple that there was really nothing to see, the natural trails were mostly snow-free, and the shops were almost all gone, at this time, the ski season is over, the mountaineering season is not coming, probably the most unusual moment on the plateau, although many places are not, but the tranquil mountain feels pretty good, It was just two pairs of people who went to the Highland at the Riverside Bridge yesterday, and if you don't like it, April will be the right choice.
