Wish Me Luck

While you are tucked safely into your beds this evening, I shall be climbing a 5,000 ft mountain.

Tai Shan 泰山, or Mount Tai, is one of the five famous mountains of China. It has been recognized by UNESCO as a world heritage site. It is located a few hours northwest of Linyi in Shandong Province. The route up the mountain is made up of almost 7000 steps and is dotted with small temples. Some info here, here and here.

We’ve been wanting to make this trip for a long time now, but for some reason we decided to wait until Winter. It should be close to 0℃ during the night, probably below the higher we get. We’ll climb at night so we can be at the summit for sunrise.

I guess I will know if this is a crazy idea or not in a few hours! See ya after the climb!
