Another group of the best of photos for the Month of April. Click through on any photo for more details and information. We had spring break and visited Thailand and was lucky enough to get in another three weekend visits to the Wall. The most special part was catching the Wall in full spring blossoms.

    More beautiful photos Mark- the colors seem brighter than usual. I love Sophie’s smile in the girls and Miles serious smile with his backpack. Thanks for sharing so many photos of the wall. I never get tired of them.

    Loved your pictures! I too have a son named Myles:) Thanks for sharing your world. I thoroughly enjoyed it. P.S. I’m also taking the test. Thanks for the levity!

    Hi Mark, we met briefly last winter chair skating at Houhai. I saw you’ve camped along the Great Wall and hope you could give me some info – really two questions: is there really any need to sign up with a tour group and how strenuous is is for the little ones (our youngest is 10). Thanks in advance for any help!

      No need to join a group or a tour. You need to go to Jiankou, you can head there via a car you drive yourself or hire. Here is map and I’ve put the spot I like to camp on the map : Let me know if you need more questions about Zhao’s or a place to hire a driver.
