TIANMU TRAIL HIKING (天母古道)

peanut soup, red bean soup and hot rice cake)

Finally we got a wonderful sunny day after a long lasting raining days. So let's go hiking! Tianmu Trail (天母古道) is a popular hiking trail in northern Taipei city and it leads you from Tianmu to Yangmin Mt.. Total distance is about 3.4Km and will take you about 2 hours to finish the whole trip.

It was quite an enjoy trip, but the long stairway almost killed us. After the stairway, we did enjoy the beautiful ancient path of Tianmu. After reaching Chinese Culture University, we took bus back to downtown and stopped by at a famous dessert shop, having a wonderful tea time for a happy ending of this trip.

Great photo's. I hiked the trail in the mid sixty's when Dad was stationed there. I was 10 or 11 years old. As soon as I saw the steps it brought back memories. We lived on Grass Mountain for about 4 years.
