Report of trip to 秦嶺 on July 2011

Day 3 (2ndJuly)

After breakfast, we went to 黑熊溝. The rain was so heavy that we had to leave. We went to 桃花山莊, it was still raining. Later we just went up a hillside track, not bad at all. After lunch, again we just went up a hillside track opposite the small restaurant. We got a lot of good photos. It seems any hillside road can yield a lot of butterflies if it leads to a good background provided it is the right season and good weather. We had to leave again because we had to return to 漢中 for the early dinner time.

Day 4 (3rdJuly)

The weather was still very bad. We went to 佛坪 as planned. We entered a footpath along our way and took some good photos. After we paid the entrance fee, we check-in our hotel and had lunch. We entered another footpath when the weather got better in the afternoon. We were forced to retired later when the weather started to get worst again. We walked around our hotel to bet our luck and got some more photos.
