This will be the final post on my visit to Huashan late last year. I’ve taken an embarrassingly long time to write and put up photos about it, so I’m finally done. I’ve still got my Luoyang and Shaolin Temple writeups to do, so those will come later. All these photos were taken on the second day I was on Huashan, and the sky really was that blue and clear.

Strays or employees’ pets, I’m not sure how these cats were here, but it was a cute sight.
