Photographer's Note

The Great Wall at Huangya mountain. We asked this fellow reading the newspaper about the reconstruction of the wall here. Apparently only the white plaster is new (as you can see in the background), but all the beautiful stone you see here is original. The reason we asked was because this section of the wall was very different than the section directly below. He said that that section (below) was refurbished in 1985. As you hike along the wall toward the peak you see in the background, the left side of the wall disappears and mostly only the steps remain.
