Holiday Home in the Mountains...

before having a bite of lunch today
i realised you just haven't had your dose of taiwanese pix...
from our january holiday there..for this week...
i thought we'd have a visit to
chiang kai-shek's holiday home,
coming down from the mountain range
on the way to the northeasterly coast of taiwan.
his holiday home was set up high on the property.
extraordinary views to the east of mountain gorges.
when the rains come
these valleys fill with rushing water.
in the dry season
they plant crops of watermelons down there!
the gardens and view
coming up from the easterly side of the property,
the blossoms were just starting to come out. 
the vegetation was lush and it was cool and wet in january.
the road coming into the property
was mossy with rock walls...
i hope you've enjoyed our visit to taiwan today!
