I visited YangMingShan last weekend but in all honesty I’d considered the trip a failure. I hiked three tails that weekend, none of which lived up to the expectations the maps and guides gave me. Plus, I missed out at hiking Qixing, the tallest mountain in the Taipei area. 

So this weekend I went back to trail run the Qixing trail, a roughly 5 kilometer up and down trail, blessed with spectacular views of the city and even the distant north coast. But cursed with way too many steps.

I brought along with me only my camera phone in hopes of good views.

The rain held off but unfortunately humidity made for poor visibility.
