In our previous attempt our Whole Big Snow Mountain Ride stopped at 2200 m elevation point, due to road closure. Now with road fixed and good winter weather, it’s time to challenge the route again and reach the 2600 meter mark.
To match a 100 km route as usual, we started a bit further up.
During winter time initial sections often had mist. The mist would clear out after climbing over 600 meter elevation.
Great clear winter day.
Still mist at valleys below.
DaDong Police Station (大棟派出所) at about 1000 m elevation.
Passing the only tunnel. Now traffic light was installed.
Soon entering toll station.
ShueShan Police Station near 2200 m elevation.
Mountain’s lower atmosphere pressure…
At last we reached the “Little Snow Mountain Visitor Center“. Here there was road continually up, but vehicle was not allow. Time for a brief hike to 2600 meter point!
2560 m elevation mark.
At the 2600 m mark was a little pond called “heaven lake”. LOL.
And it was time to bring out the drone for some nice aero shoots!
Mountain mist. It was freezing here (about 6 degree).
Notice there was a radar station at the nearby peak.
After the drone fly it was time to leave this freezing top.
