The wish for a clear day
Please View Large On Black
Jiancing Historic Trail, like many other trails in Taipingshan National Forest, was built along the old logging railway. The elevation of 2000m is the height at which clouds form and linger. Jiancing (見晴) actually means the wish for a clear day. For a photographer, however, there's nothing better than hiking all day in the impenetrable white mist.
