I went first to the left one and had to climb up to small waterfall and the walk in narrow gorge. On the end was triple cascade waterfall. I tried climb up, but everything was very slippery. Even I could go more up, go down will be nearly impossible (maybe with rope next time).
Ok went back, but instead of go back home take rest decide go more up in bigger right branch. There were not big problem in first part, juste steeper ascent on bigger stones.
Up Up Up, then I check watch and saw that I was already in 1200 m in very narrow pass up. I look around and sit for few minutes and enjoy the view and peace in this place. I climb little up to 1250 m and then decided really went back.
I guess how far I was from top, actually not so far – but still 200 m of ascent. Probably there have to be some way go up, but it will be story for next year. Took rest for road half marathon on Sunday (below).
Phontenkom half marathon 埔里奉天宮三山國王盃路跑賽
Sunday: It was our first race in Puli and we wanted run it. Half marathon on road, after season of trail running, will examine our body. Ha it was no bad, I got 6th position and Eva 7th. I still have big space for improve in this distance (ha, should do trail run day before).
It was again nice weather, even was quite chilly before start. Run was on the roads on south of Puli and you could saw some big temples around the direction. There were even little uphill (no steep, but together around 100 m in middle part), many farms around and forest path before finish.
Eva’smother didn’t run this time, but she cared about our puppy aqua (puppy begins pretty fast) I finish at 1:17:19 and I went with Aqua for Eva and she finish 2:00:04. The start and place was in nice temple, no bad food and even could rise some money prize or great chocolate and cake pack from Feeling18巧克力 (it is really best chocolate and ice cream in Taiwan).
Enjoy morning after race, talk with other runners and then quickly pack our stuff and went to Taichung 台中 for family trip to 新社花海 Xīn shè huā hǎi, flower exhibition and very big fields of different flowers. And food in market. I was so tired, so busy weekend.
