A rectangular stone resembles a sarcophagus, placed on top of the bare rock, left to the wind and rain, sun and frost, thousands of years without decay and erosion. Tourists walking here, inevitably ask: where is the great sage buried in this? My peers wonderful answer: wukong great sage. Think about it, Wukong stone monkey origin, finally buried in a sarcophagus, it is only natural.
Passing through a line of sky, there is the feeling of survival in the cracks. Both sides are uneven and straight up and down the cliff, look up on the sky, there are drops of water dripping down; feet are slippery steps, you have to follow the footsteps of the front walk slowly. Out of a line of sky, the sky in front of you, a "wall promenade" across the mountainside.
This is the Jibi Trail, which is located at an altitude of more than 1,700 meters on the mountain side of the Jibi, with a total length of 488 meters and 118 steps. From a distance, it looks like a reclining dragon, winding and twisting, ups and downs. Walking along the path, it is as if you are in the clouds, you can see the vast sky and earth, canyon peaks, winding mountain roads, and idyllic villages. The tour guide said that this road means "the road is winding, but the heart is always the same". Yes, a seemingly ordinary path is given a profound philosophy of life, just because it is in Enshu Grand Canyon.
Travel to the canyon Xuan, here is half of the whole course, is also the limit of physical exertion, some tourists began to ride the slide pole. Our group took a short break and gritted our teeth to climb up the mountain, when suddenly, a picture of auspicious clouds and torches appeared on the top of the hanging wall. It looks as if it was built by a piece of stone, but it is the creation of nature; as if it is dangerous, but it has not fallen down after a thousand years. This torch, symbolizing the Olympic spirit, gives us the strength to climb to the top!
After continuing to walk, we finally saw the treasure of the Grand Canyon's town valley - a cone of incense: more than 150 meters high, the bottom of the column is 6 meters in diameter, the smallest diameter of 4 meters. It looks like the center of gravity is shifted and shaky, but the wind does not blow down and the rain does not move; although it has been through several major earthquakes, it has stood proudly among the peaks for millions of years. According to legend, this stone pillar is a difficult incense given to the local people by the God of Heaven, which can turn bad luck and pray for good fortune, so the local people call it "difficult incense". Tourists come here to show a hand, take a picture, take away a magic and good luck!
Twin peaks, it is actually a pair of twins, looks, body shape, height, is simply a match made in heaven. If it were not for the divine work of the heavens, how could there be such superb skills in the human world? I remembered a trip to Malaysia last year, the capital city of Kuala Lumpur's Twin Towers is one of the iconic cityscape, the locals are proud! That is in a busy city, designed and manufactured by man; and this is in the Grand Canyon of Enshi, generated by nature.
Mother and son love each other, such a warm and touching picture. In the uninhabited Grand Canyon, the loving mother embraced her child tightly and kissed him. She knew that if she let go of the child, the child would fall into the abyss beneath her feet. And so, day after day, year after year, over millions of years. I thought to myself, "How can a stubborn stone be like this, let alone a human being? Only a mother's love is the greatest on earth!
Walking down the mountain, already extremely tired, originally thought that the day's journey was over, ready to hit the road back home. The tour guide told us that there were still attractions at the Cloud Dragon Seam that we had not yet visited. At this point, it was almost dusk, so we had to hurry to go back, so the rest of us stayed behind to rest, and the 4 of us ran towards the Cloud Dragon Seam without stopping.
The Grand Canyon is above the ground, while the Yunlong Seam is below the ground; the Grand Canyon is the wonder of the mountains, while the Yunlong Seam is the wonder of the water. The water is the master of this place, and the water has eroded the seam into a thousand shapes and colors. The names of the water are so beautiful: Tianshui Dark River, Flying Waterfall and Spring, Jade Liquid Lingzhi, Water Pearl Curtain, and so on.
The road became more rugged, and the scenery on both sides became more and more dramatic. Stone harp, stone mushroom, stone heater, gold yuanbao, jade ruyi, nature's wonderful hand, but also the work of art, the lonely and desolate a mountain road is decorated with vivid and vivid, full of interest. Near the top of the peak, an ancient pine in front of the wall hanging in mid-air, people have to take pictures in front of this welcoming pine. Further ahead, the peaks are standing, the snow pressed branches, a rock crevice can barely allow a ground sideways and pass. Some people try to name it "Lianguan", saying that the corrupt officials who eat fat must not pass. I said it should be called "Beauty Pass", a slim lady can pass, the second is a large waist of heroes can not pass this pass.
Later it seems to be shady mountains, and there is much ice and snow on the stone stairway. There were too many tourists, and the whole way was slowly moving forward from person to person. The purpose of warming up could not be achieved, and disappointment grew in my heart. The peak turns, a wall in front of a crowd of people, look but nothing scenic, buried forward, to go out of the house, only to find the far right, between the two peaks, a stone pillar stands out, in the sky and the sea of clouds in the extraordinary. Hastily retreated back and took a few shots on the observation deck. Closer to the front, it turns out that this is the famous "a burning incense": more than 150 meters high, the thinnest part of only 4 meters, a pillar of the sky, to close to find its roots are still tens of meters below the foot. In its head, a few small trees stand against the wind, the wind and snow, it is like a curl of smoke! A good cone of high incense!
Through the door of the building, in front of the "sky road" is clearly written, gradually slow, people blocked. It turns out that the front section of the downhill is very steep, pedestrian difficulties, a team of people wearing the words "PICC" to actively maintain safety and order. After waiting for more than half an hour, we were released, a long row of the platform to the right of the Thumb Peak, Little Finger Peak, Jade Pen Peak, Jade Lady Peak and other attractions. Down that section of the icy stone ladder road, a slip, and then carefully holding the rattan handrail slowly down. After passing by a "mother and son" attractions, into a section of the canyon surrounded by peaks, artificial stone stairs spiral circling down, extremely steep and dangerous, a middle-aged man is almost hands on the ground to crawl down the shuttle. Out of this section of the dangerous road called "cloud stairs into the mortal", in front of a bright and clear, heart a relief: finally walked through this section of the thrilling heavenly road, back to the mortal world!
I don't know what to think of Li Bai's "Dreaming of a trip to Tianluo": "...... Thousands of rocks, thousands of turns of road uncertain, confused flowers leaning against the stone has suddenly noon. The bear roars and the dragon bites Yin rock spring, the chestnut deep forest and startled layer top." The Tianlu Mountain must not be as magnificent as the poet's imagination, but the Grand Canyon is a real source of trembling and amazement! From the front of the mountain to the back of the mountain, the overall is like climbing an English letter "M"; from the prologue of the horse, to the ladder into the mortal back to earth, as if a stone forest along the way, in the twists and turns, gullies and ravines continue to present to visitors the ghosts of nature.
By walking along the stone-faced walkway and enjoying the scenery along the way, you enter a world made up of water. The river beneath your feet is full of dark currents and gurgling water; the steep walls on both sides of the river are full of waterfalls and springs; the cliff eaves above your head are full of water dripping like rain and curtains. Even the stones here because of the water washing will be "point stone for gold": colorful Huanglong waterfall, the riverbed of the stone resembles agate, a casual collection is a multi-million year antique, worth a fortune. The plants are also nourished by the water and have extraordinary value, and the common grass is crowned with "lingzhi jade liquid".
There is one more thing that I still haven't figured out. The water also cascaded down from the mountain, forming a huge waterfall, which was milky white. I stood close for a long time to observe: it was like a piece of white satin, hanging in the air, and then fell into the river valley, fell to pieces, forming a pool of jelly, seems very sticky. To be more precise, it was a bit like milk, but is there milk in the canyon too?
Due to the time constraint, I didn't have time to savor Yunlong seam, and I walked all the way to the seam, though I walked the whole way. Especially at the end, we climbed the stairs from the river valley to the ground, the stairs were narrow and steep, and it was slippery, so we climbed up almost in one breath, and we were so tired that we couldn't breathe.
A line of sky, as the name implies, the passage is narrow, the rock wall is steep, looking up to the sky only a line. In fact, the Grand Canyon of a line of sky is not a straight line, is a curved line, nor can it be a straight line, just take the name. Step into it, the whole person is surrounded by high cliffs, high cliffs rise up, towering into the sky, narrow passages, particularly depressing, the road in a line of sky turns, dark light, surrounded by strange rocks, narrow side by side, interesting and peculiar.
As long as you pay attention, there is scenery everywhere around you, in the Grand Canyon, in the Seven Star Cottage, everywhere you look is scenery, may be a strange stone, a single peak, or may be a resounding valley, the crowd is happy to learn the sound of birds. Everyone has seen the "horizontal look into the mountain side into the peak, near and far, different heights" after different, the landscape has only changed a model, a change of style.
I want to tell you how high the Grand Canyon is, I want to tell you that it is close to the sky, straight into the clouds, if you can climb, will be worth the beauty. The highest elevation at the top of the mountain is 1800 meters, and the seam is about 1400 meters above sea level, which is a big drop and extremely ornamental. We came on a sunny day, the sun shines and the light is good everywhere. It is said that the rain tour Grand Canyon, another scene, the Grand Canyon on a rainy day, the sea of clouds, as if the heaven and earth, if the rain clears, you can also see the rainbow, a large sea of clouds, in the sun shine, like a large snow field, mist, like a fairyland.
The road signs showed that we had taken 2,299 steps and had reached a peak of 1,697 meters, with translation in four languages, Chinese, English, Japanese and Korean, and I couldn't believe I was at the top of the mountain when we reached the wall stack. The Jedi Trail, which began construction in 2007, is more like a cliff trestle, built on a vertical wall 300 meters above the ground, 488 meters in length, with a foot of air, a frightening, psychological chill, legs and feet a little weak. The entire escalator, temporary rest, I only dared to look down the mountain once, the children are not so afraid of us, back against the escalator to take pictures, these dangerous and strange spots they especially like. On the contrary, my lover, not to mention the hard drive, play is not easy, hair like a hair wash, all wet, down the steps, legs shivering.
The wall walkway is built along the mountain, with a unique style, "will be the top of the mountain, at a glance of the mountains", looking at the mountains towering in the distance, continuous, villages, farmland, rivers, highways, as far as the eye can see. Vehicles driving on the road, like ants crawling, everything is visible, let people relax.
When I arrived at Echo Valley, I was touched by a little girl of about five or six years old by the roadside. The girl was dressed in a light red and yellow ethnic costume, sitting alone under a stone crack knitting bracelets. With her head down, she did not dare to look at the pedestrians passing by, but just buried her head in serious knitting. The red thread jumped and tumbled in her tiny fingertips, just like the tide ebbs and flows. The floating of the dots and lines is like the flowing beauty of art. When we walked past her, she hummed, "Master! Buy an incense bag." That sweet, delicate voice seemed to flow from her lips, a voice with the timidity of youth and a faint affinity. We stopped to chat with her, and she just lowered her head and whispered in response. When she looked up to get the incense packet for us, I saw her face - a pair of grape-like watery eyes, a small nose and lips, and dark red cheeks that showed a hint of a sunny smile. I asked her: Why didn't she study, but came here to sell fragrant bags? She was embarrassed and said: "We are on holiday, I came here to sell the scented bags to save money. When I have money, I can buy myself nice pens and fairy tale books." Hearing her answer, I was deeply moved. This is such a simple reason, but this is a child who knows how to do things. Mountain children, you take up the responsibility of the family too early. I took the fragrant bag and left, silently wishing this touching little girl.
Grand Canyon, the peculiar one cone still towering in your embrace, I approached you only awe, but can not decipher your mystery. This may be the special gift of nature; Grand Canyon, although you do not have the fortitude of Mount Huashan or the beauty of Guilin, you have the beauty that others do not have. Grand Canyon, today I approached you, let me see your charm, let me read the magic of you. It is "strange peaks and flying rocks according to selenium, heavenly scenery like a precious pearl. The world is not wrong with the Grand Canyon".
Grand Canyon, thank you for leaving me touched. In the near future, I think I will come back to see you again! I will leave these words to you and to this land I love so much, the Grand Canyon of Enshi.
