same to you

china, heaven's gate

This is Tianmen Mountain in China, the road leading to it is often called the road to Heaven, Tianmen Mountain, Zhangiajie is in northwestern, Hunan Province.  It is long and winding, the view is amazing, one can only imagine the work and the planning that went into putting this road through the national park.  Each worker, visitor to this unique part of the world has to be caught up in the wonder of it all.

There is a hike/climb  of approximately 7 miles one can do, to reach the gate itself, (1st picture) if you make that journey the Chinese say, it i the “closest Earth Landmark to God”

China, Tianmen Mountain, heaven's gateThe natural beauty of the place has an almost ethereal feel…. I can only imagine what it must be like to actually be there.In taking in the celestial ambiance of the area, I feel myself slowing down, and letting my thoughts drift into the mist.  Yet to some the hike is among the 10 top adrenaline pumping hiking trails there is.

And yes, depending on circumstances, and the people I was with, I would consider doing this hike.  I mean, wow, what an adventure and a heart thumping beyond words experience it would be. We really never know what tomorrow will bring, or where we will be.  Just because we plan something, doesn’t mean it will happen.  I often think of the many times I hear “have a good day” and the automatic response, is  “same to you”.  Do we mean it? and if we do, what are we really saying, a good day to me, might not be a good day to someone else.

Just like these pictures invoke in me a sense of pure delight, they are temptations for my imagination and I longed to share them with you.  But…they may not be your cup of tea, however I can hope that you will  happily indulge me and enjoy my absolute fascination with this place.

China, Tianmen National ParkMy heart was lifted to a smiling place while sharing this with you. I feel transported to a magical place, where all is peaceful and well….  and…. dear reader, my virtual friend, I sincerely wish the same to you.
