Here is where we trekked over the last week…you need super sight powers to read it but I wanted to include it anyway!

Map of Great Wall

I kept hoping that we were going to have one day with sunshine while hiking the wall but no such luck. The last day was actually the stormiest of them all with high winds and rain. Today our hike was was along a popular tourist part of the wall at Mutianyu and Dr. Jiang and some of the doctors he works with came out to hike with us. Michele’s friend, Bruce, who is also from Vancouver, joined us as we reached our hiking goal at the top of the Stairway to Heaven. I had to laugh that our final ascent was a staircase to Heaven…so appropriate and a great way to finish the journey! We took some photos at the top and then quickly retreated back down for lunch at Subway which seemed to be a fan favourite this week.
