Roll With The Hills – Great Wall of China – Near Beijing, China

 

Photo of the Day – Roll With The Hills – Great Wall of China – Near Beijing, China

Could you imagine if modern roads were constructed similar to how the Chinese built the Great Wall? Today when a road is built, we dynamite through hills to create a relatively flat road. This makes sense for everyday driving, but wouldn’t it be really cool to have a few roads that rolled naturally with the hills. I’d have a blast flying in a Porsche down this section of the wall!

The Great Wall of China Forever – Near Beijing, China

 

Photo of the Day – The Great Wall of China Forever – Near Beijing, China

The Great Wall of China is one of the World’s sites that you will never see all of (and I don’t count those photos from space! :) ). While hiking the Jinshangling to Simatai section of the wall, I had a similar view of what you see in today’s photo and this wall just goes and goes and goes. Even as I follow the wall in this photo, I am confused at which direction it goes at some points as it seems to double-back on itself. The Great Wall is fascinating and always will be to me as I know I’ll never see all of it.
