when the sun comming out

I got a very early day  today for sunrise... i crept out of the room , Simon still in the sleep ,hehee... lazy bear now....

Compared with 7 years befroe, this fish port has changed lottt,  it becomes a tourist place ....

I was walking along the gravel beach , the breeze and the sound of the surf  accompanied me, it brought my memory back...

I used to talk with many old fish men here  ... listening  their wise and life experience...

I used to wait sunrise here many times... i have never forgetten the view  when i saw the sun risen above the horizon...what an amazing color..

I enjoyied my morning stroll.... :D  Simon has already woke up when i back to guesthouse....

Today , we were going to Baiyang trail and Mukumugi.

Mukumugi
...

Mukumugi comes from the language of Truku .  Mukumugi means a paradise of peace and happiness.It  locations at TongMen village , 20 mins journey from Hualien city , it is rich in nature resource and scenery.Waters flows through form MuGua and QingShui brooks and carrys tons of stones and sands.Several dams and hydroelectricity have been built along its bank.This area has been preserved very well  by local people.

It is a place you need the permit for entering ... well... 10NT (20cent Euro)per each...... it real deserves it ... Simon even got a souvenir there by friendly police officer when we left this amazing place.

We down to the water by feet and crawled  on the big rocks for photograph.

..

"hey, panda knows  her PAWS and CLAWS better" i told to Simon. Suddenly, i  slipped on the rock ....well..  practice makes perfect....

Time went  so fast....We had spend 2 hours there already... just a small water area ...   we decided stay one more night at Hualien ..  it is impossible  for us to make a rush tour at  Taroko ... 

Time to feed the panda... we went to the market ... i want to have some dumplings for lunch

Again, Simon was confusing about the dumplings because the market looks not that clean like white room...... anyway .. if  bear wants to travel round world... i am sure .. it would be a very big challenge for him..especially in latin america , Mexcio ,China, Mongolia,India.

i was learning how to take a roaring waterfull shot!!
.. some countries where famous for majestic scenery ...so.. i need plan A ...a plan which i used to use it on sausage , ximiru ,saumai.....etc

I ordered a steamer of dumplings for myself...

wanna try it?  just one  bite...... i asked him... then 1 min after....

Hey, waiter.... i would like to order another steamer of dumplings...  yes..bear like it..... hahahha..

After grabing coffee at 7-11 ,a SUPER convenience shop , we went to Baiyang trail at Taroko George...

Baiyang trail , a place characterized by the number of wet ,long  tunnels(7 tunnels along 2 Km trail),it is also one of an ease of access travel sopt at Taroko...For start,a 350 meters long tunnel was waiting for us... soon we were overcome with tunnel vision ,the  end of the tunnel becomes the only point of reference, after out of the first tunnel, the darkness opens into an amazing view of the river with endless green geroges.

. we were on the way to Monkey's Home.... Baiyang waterfall and the Cave of the water curtain....hugging the mountainside,the trail fllows the Liwu river, it crosses landslide cliffs and winds through long dark tunnels for an excited adventure and with a bit dangures...before into the final tunnel to the cave of the water curtain , cross the long bridge above the small but powerful waterfall.... the Baiyang waterfall and a crystalline rock pool sit behind... we stop here  for rest and photograph ..... after passing 2 more tunnels ,we were in front of the gate of the water curtain cave.... hahaha.. Monkey's house....we were almost there....  water curtain,as its name ,it  is a scence created by water comming form chinks in the rock wall and the tunnel roof.
hehe.. little dumpling ...come to papa
..it was a fun to into the cave..  we were WET and COOL..hahahha... come on.. it is WATER CURTAIN....  unfortunately, the trail has shot after the cave because of the  complete collapse .It is not allow to into the second water curtain...it is the end of the whold trail... soon , we were on the way back to Hualien city... and hehehe...had more dumplings for dinner...Simon was very well with it... he is a real dumpling killer... after a cup of the Mc sundaes  and a lightly walking .. we lay on the soft bed and into the dream... what a lovey day...
