虎跳峡 & 玉龙雪山 tiger leaping gorge and jade dragon snow mountain

Some photos of five days I spent wandering through Tiger Leaping Gorge, some from the high trail, others from when I went off wandering upwards on my own little journey. This is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been, and I’ve been drawn to Yulong Xueshan since I saw photos of it a few years ago. It is more awe-inspiring than any words I could write, the photographs are only poor scratches in dirt beside incomprehensible immenseness, and the desire to catch a farmer’s ferry across the gorge and climb the endless peaks was almost irresistable.

going on holiday

I’m going on holiday. For more than a week, maybe even two weeks… One place I’ve always wanted to visit, mainly because it has a huge mountain there, is 玉龙雪山 Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, near 丽江 Lijiang, or to give the full name, 丽江纳西族自治县 the Lijiang Naxi Autonomous Region. Anyway. Holiday. Art. I’m staying at the Lijiang Artist Studio, and will be showing some stuff from Guangzhou, and extermination.

I’m not planning on blogging, checking my email, taking my phone or iPod until I return. Enjoy the silence.
