Jiuhua Shan

Sunday morning we were up early to go to the next peak. The trip involved another bus ride and then a cable car ride. Before entering the cable car Wu Han told me there would be two stops on the way up and not to worry. What he meant was that the cable car slowed almost to a stop at two places which just happened to be when we were suspended about 1,000 feet above the valley floor and the wind was blowing hard. The cable cars are grouped in three's and when you get off or get on they slow down a bit so you can hop in or out.

Top Right: Looking down soon after we started.

Center: The cable cars we rode are seen in this picture but are very tiny. You can just barely see a group of three cars at the right 1/3 of the picture.
Bottom Right: Zooming in on the cars seen in the picture above. Just past this ridge you are so high up you feel like you are in an airplane.
Bottom Left: Temple built on the side of the mountain.
