One of my favorite tunnels at the temple fair for Chinese New Year!

Not too long ago, we took a little trip to a nearby mountain called Qingcheng. We were expecting to see lots of snow and beautiful vistas and were not disappointed. Unfortunately, I have never actually assessed my ability to walk on ice and really struggled (physically and mentally) up the slick stairs and over the icy bridges. With a firm grip on Zach and a push or two from a random hiker on my behind, I survived to tell the tale. I didn't take too many pictures because I was basically terrified of falling the entire hike. I feel as if I conquered a fear that I never knew I had!

A few more photos from the Philippines... I have about 600 more on top of this.

our own private beach shack.

|I did NOT want to leave the beach!|

On our voyage into the interior of the island, we took a cruise up river to some waterfalls surrounded by jungle. This was followed by a zip line over the same falls. My first time to zip line! I wasn't very scared until I saw the end coming (ignore my screams!).
|Too bad we missed the Loveboat.|

My favorite of our day trips in the Philippines was going to see the Tarsiers. Yes, they are even creepier up close. I was most scared of one of these leaping at my neck, but we got out safely.
