Philip and Leigh drive up to Taipingshan 太平山 to look for a trail down toward Mohen stream 莫很溪. We find the trail head. It is clear that there was once a road but it is overgrown with grass and we are not equipped for the changing weather which is very cool and it begins to rain, so we abandon the exploration.

Short walk with Celia visiting from the UK along the old road into the FeiTsui reservoir 翡翠水庫 above Sikanshui 四崁水
