So, back to my Taiwan trip. Where are we going this time? Yehliu (野柳), Wanli, Taiwan county it is which is at the northern part between Taipei and Keelung. It was a hot and sunny day that day, i remembered. The locals said that wind erosion gives its coast geological teaching materials and makes it a paradise of peculiar stones: wind-eroded rocks, wind-eroded ditches, wind-eroded cliffs, wind-eroded holes, and narrow capes.
It's like a golden wide picture, a sandy gold coast. There are surprises everywhere here, that is why i called it "Desert in the middle of the sea". Its' gorgeous sea view extends from the edge of cape, while on the coast there are rocks of peculiar shapes: mushroom, to-fu, elephant’s nose, fairy’s shoes, and queen’s head. The rocks look so amazing that you may wonder whether they are truly natural or man-made, haha!
And it was so hot until we don't even feel the cool breeze. All the bizarre landscape and lava formation reminds me of Mars. Am so excited about this post, all the pictures are so fascinating, don't know which one to upload..
