Dragon's Back - September 2001

Looking like the back of some great serpent, the story is that this part of the wall took so long to build that the Prince responsible for its progress was put to death. Later, when the quality of the work became apparent, he was posthumously honored and his family was restored to its former place. After hiking along the top I was impressed it had been built at all, let alone stand for almost 2000 years
