China celebrates Arbor Day on March 12 each year. This year we joined Naturewize at Yu Zhang Shu Yuan in the countryside north of Guiyang to help out with their family nature activities.
The natural scenery just south of Guizhou’s Provincial Capital, Guiyang, is dominated by lush forests and karst limestone mountains that provide farmers with some difficulty, but provides hikers many idyllic scenes that scream, RURAL CHINA! With the urbanization sweeping the country, we feel very lucky to be so close to landscapes conducive to hiking and camping. We also feel the need to take the lead on Keeping China Green, at least in our small way!
