Nearing the top

Nearing the top

Sections of the Great Wall appear, from a distance, to meander from peak-to-peak, but once you are up on the wall, the perception of meandering gives way to the hard, steep reality of climbing up and down from tower-to-tower. Here, Melinda pauses before taking the final few uneven steps to the top. Our mid-week visit was free of crowds, pollution and excessive heat, making for a very pleasant day at Mutianyu.
