Last Sunday, we joined some Gore folks for a hike. Hong Kong has a large amount of green space and some really excellent trails. This was my first outdoor foray since arriving over a year ago. I want to make it a regular habit. The weather was phenomenal: clear, low humidity and in the high 60s - low 70s. It doesn't get any better than this in Hong Kong. We hiked over Hong Kong island and ended on the south side at Stanley for some well deserved beers. The hike was pretty tough due to an assent of about 1500 steps--literally stairs. I was the only woman to join and was the slowest, but the guys were patient. The hike took about 2.5 hours. It was a great afternoon.

See me in the distance in the magenta shirt?

Good perspective of the trail and mountain.
