Climbing up the Mountain

Two weekends ago, we rode the train to the end of the tracks to see what we could see out the windows at the different stops. At one stop we saw a Buddha type thing and a tall red tower and said to ourselves "we will go there someday." Well that someday was Saturday. We didn't have any other plans for the weekend and thought it would be fun to get off the train where we saw the temple and see if we could find it. Sure enough, we did! We only made one wrong turn on the way. When we got to the base of the hill, we left the stroller and had Lucy walk with us while Ben carried Jack in his "papoose"! Lucy did really well walking up all the stairs, but I made her hold my hand just in case she fell backwards. Here are some of the pictures we took-
Some of the stairs up to the temple
There was a huge cemetery all along the way up. They take really good care of their cemeteries. There are water spouts and brushes hanging on them to clean the headstones. They also clear all the leaves and sticks off of them too.

These two guys were on the outside of some door. I thought they looked a little scary

The view from the top!

This is the Red tower that is to the right of the Buddha temple.

There were a ton of these statues. I am not sure what they are for, but a lot of them were dressed up and had some small toys placed in front of them. (I guess I had better do a little bit of research)

We stopped to rest at a small picnic bench and we had a few snacks from my stash in the backpack- and I took a few pictures of cutey Jack!
