Taipei hiking: a dozen views of Taipei 101


Apropos of nothing much, here’s a bunch of views of Taipei 101 all taken during hikes I’ve done in the 3 months since coming back to Taiwan. The weather’s generally cloudy here in spring so most of them weren’t taken on the best of days, but anyway you can see how well Taipei 101 serves as a reference point from the mountains all around the city.

This one from Kangleshan in Neihu, with Elephant Mountain prominent to the left:

From Jinmian Rocks, further along the Neihu ridge:
