I actually made 2 trips to this section of the Great Wall, first my own, then returned another day with Carole. Here I include photos of both trips. When I went alone it was a clear day. When Carole and I went together was a heavy pollution day, and the photos are hazy.
So here we are almost to the wall. You can see in the twisty mountain road leading here. In the background, invisible through the smog is a big lake and on the other side of the lake is Jackson Hole where we live.
And these 2 pieces of pipe are at the end of the one lane paved road
After that it becomes a one lane dirt road:
which soon ends up close to the wall. I actually went off the road onto a little trail where I could drive right up onto the wall:
And here we are back on the hazy pollution day where you can see the what's left of the Great Wall zig-zagging along the hills in the distance and below is the twisty paved road to get there.
