Tieshan waterfall 鐵柵瀑布, 4:30 PM
We are unable to climb over Tieshan waterfall 鐵柵瀑布 (or 鐵珊瀑布) and decide to turn back downstream and exit the canyon at the Dahan Sentry Station 大漢守衛站 trail.
Back downstream to Dahan Sentry Station 大漢守衛站 trail
Back up to the road at 56.2k at 6 PM
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.
