Biking in AliShan National Park

Blogging from your smartphone is sadistic.  Got a new IMac today and downsized from 27 to 21 inches.  About 3 weeks ago my 27 inch IMac literally crashed on me to the floor crushing the top right corner and rendering it inoperable.  It’s at an Apple servicing store now having my hard drive retrieved so I can save my 2 years of Iphone photos that were recently transferred to the IMac.

caravanned by car about an hour away southwest of Taichung to the Alishan National Mountain Scenic Area.   It is located probably about the 12193832_1141884472507286_7197657578890443375_nmiddle point on the island of Taiwan.  We parked just on the outskirts of the park and begon our 2 hour ascent.

Sintty and I are just scratching the surface in the beauty that Taiwan holds in its surrounding countryside and mountains.
