These photos are from right after HeHuanShan, and on the way toward Taroko Gorge. This is in between Taichung, which is near the West coast of Taiwan, and the East Coast.
At some point along the road there was construction going on. They permitted cars to pass every hour through according to a fixed schedule. As you can see, fog obscured much of the mountainside.
I don’t have pictures of the angry dogs that were guarding this area, so you’ll just have to believe me.
Much of what I saw was from the inside of the car. There really are mountains everywhere, and the landscape still feels quite alien and alluring to me.
