[2020/1/5]七星山 - The Mountain Album

Indoor rock climbing with friends in the morning. Hiking in late afternoon. Why? Since I felt I hadn’t sweated my shirt enough for the day, I decided to take Z out for a little hike to the summit of Mt. Qixing, the highest volcano and also one of the most popular day hike destinations in Taiwan. I chose the shortest trail for her.

The weather was fine, and the car park surprisingly offered free entry because of a system upgrade. We started climbing the stairs at a slow pace and I found Z could actually keep up without having to take too many breaks. The view, however, was affected by poor air quality, which clouded the far side of the city.

Just before hitting the one-hour mark, we arrived at the summit, and I quickly had Z put on her jacket to prevent wind-chilling. Naturally, we asked a hiker to take a picture of us beside a wooden post on a protruding rock. I tried to take her to the east summit which was just 200m away, but she refused to go any further, so we started down. I was glad she seemed okay during the descent.

I hope she liked it. But I fear she was doing it for meeting my expectation. Sigh. Is it true that some people could never understand the pleasure of hiking, or outdoor activities in general?
