Peak Hike

The weather has been beautiful recently. Oct-Dec is the best weather in HK, because the humidity drops and the temperatures are mild (high 70s-low 80s). We took advantage of the great weather and hiked up to the Peak for the first time. The Peak is the area on top of the mountain on Hong Kong Island and is a big tourist attraction due to the beautiful views. It is an easy hike since it is all paved but is quite steep. It was a very fun day, and Erik snapped some great pics. This picture is good, because it shows how the trail runs right through the city.A beautiful old colonial home:The Peak tram used to be the only way to get up the mountain and is still in operation and a popular tourist ride.You can see how the city has developed all around the tram pathway:
