Timber!

Perhaps I should have titled this post "Let's Forest!" Yesterday we went for a wander in the local hills to see what damage the typhoon had done. Our immediate neighbourhood is really well sheltered so it is always hard to tell how strong the wind is.

We soon came across a mass of branches blocking the path. Scrambling around the side we got to the following:


The old path runs straight up the middle of the picture (in fact the steps cut into the rock are visible).

I'm going to spend the rest of the weekend thinking about whether it made any noise.

The Asahi Shimbun or Shanghai Daily might have a slightly different take on things...
