Last Hike in 2012

Three of us, father, mother and younger son, went hiking in Penang Hill again. This was a five hours round-trip as we spent time breathing, exploring and laughing uncontrollably.





As laughing uncontrollably, nothing much can be said about the colony of mushrooms, the hugging trees, and the leaves that cupping down along the trail.

Wspaniała wycieczka, a drzewo wygląda jakby je kto sznurkiem obwiązał. Pozdrawiam.
Great trip, and it looks like a tree who tied with string. Yours.
