Naturally, as part of our trip to China we planned to go and walk the Great Wall of China. We visited the Badaling section of the wall and it was a beautiful, clear Spring day; so naturally it was busy. We opted to go up the left less crowded side and for good reason – it is steep. I am sure it is obvious to everyone else but I was surprised exactly how steep it is and it made for some serious walking. What an amazing experience!
