We get back up to the road on a well-roped and sometimes steep trail coming up to the road at 56.2km just below the Dahan Sentry Station 大漢守衛站 at 57.6k just as the day is ending. Philip walks down the road to Xuanyuan 萱源 to get the car. As Aaron and Leigh wait a pair of female pigs come up out of the forest and eat some of our food. They dive back into the forest when a vehicle approaches, but then come back out. They may be hybridized wild boar with domestic pig? As we drive out there are several groups hiking along the road with lights looking for snakes. We stop and watch a man successfully bag a cobra.
