Photo Of The Day – The Great Wall

The Great Wall of China running along the mountain tops of China

The Great Wall of China

Today I’m launching a new addition to the blog:  The Photo Of The Day.  Every day I will put up a picture from my travels along with a description or story associated with the image.  Let me know what you think.

My first full day in China I went on a “tour” of the great wall with a dozen other people from the hostel.  The tour included transportation to and from the wall, about 3 hours up on the wall, and a couple bottles of water.  It took us about 90 minutes to get there, but we went to a pretty deserted spot which was great.  For most of the day, our group were the only ones up there.  Aside from a little rain early on, it ended up being pretty clear as well.
