Although a hazy day, this is a view of the lake from up in the forest.
Inside the grounds are several things to do and see. There is a monastery and temple, a petrified forest, paleontology museum, paddle boats on the lake, bamboo garden, bonsai garden, and forest trails to hike. Below are pics of the Monastery and temple.
Of course, when you are surrounded by nature, you can't help but take it all in. I love to do close-up shots of flowers, especially when I find them being dined on by tiny creatures. :) Catching something so small, that people pass by so easily, is truly a gift of enjoyment from Mother Nature.

As you can see, it is a beautiful place. And when you are there, you just have a sense of calm about you. There are minimal cars within the park grounds, and the trees are great at hiding the noises of the city that lingers close by. I will be going back and if I am lucky, it will not be as hazy when I return. That way, I can get some better pictures of the landscape. Thank you, China, for continually surprising me with the variety of things you offer.
