climbing the steps of Lion's Head
I was wrong.
I went back to Lion's Head Mountain last weekend with the husband and some friends. We discovered three separate temples all carved into the mountainside and greenery before finally turning around. Staircases built into the mountainside and forest led us from one temple to another. All boasted beautiful mountainside scenery. After the third temple, we spied some more stairs leading around a bend higher up into the mountains. We decided to turn around, however, because my husband's knees don't like going down stairs and rain clouds were fast approaching.
Now I am so curious: where do those stairs lead? What other goodies are hiding on Lion's Head?
Taiwan certainly does some things right. Near the top of my list are temples. They are ornate, colorful, and a little whimsical. I cannot wait to trek up as many stairs as possible here, hopefully seeing even more beauty tucked into the rugged hillsides of Lion's Head.
